My Lover the Mountain


So often
have I draped my limbs
across this loving mountain
that her granite
is softened by my rocking
her conifers
flattened on one side
from supporting my rest
her maples
reddening early
in anticipation

  5. You put me there, Marian. I can just see and feel the softened hunk of granite. It also reminded me of Franklin Mountain, at the west side of El Paso, Texas. I've climbed it several times, a couple of which we took the cable car down. No cactus where you were, ours was covered with cactus.
