What is a Mountain?

Peace, one and all…

What is a mountain
but a million grains of sand
bound together by love and longing.

What is a mountain
but the earth’s slow ascent towards heaven
through the merciful descent of rain.

What is a mountain
but a cradle for life at higher altitudes,
a verdant garden for the trees of our humanity.

  1. Most excellent poem, Abdur Bhai 🙂 A lovely ode to the majesty and life of these inspiring peaks, which reflected the Most Majestic, the Life Giver and the Source of all Inspiration.

    Ya Haqq!
