NAPOWRIMO Day Five ~ Quiet Majestic Mountain Top ~

In honor of Mary Oliver’s work, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape. But it should be about a slice of the natural world that you have personally experienced and optimally, one that you have experienced often. Try to incorporate specific details while also stating why you find the chosen place or plant/animal meaningful.

seeking the serene roaming worldwide
up on the Roof of the World who 
can be but the most daring- there,
there is a ‘quiet ‘up there’
on a green square turf playing
in white with a white, smashing
matching skills over net…
in crowd there is a ‘quiet up there
nature’s growth of seed and grass
nothing moves, no wave no pass
Divinity Supreme resides in valley
there is a ‘holy quiet there’

winding river stream far below
meandering, yet still cutting
the courses, while a group of wild
manes flying untamed horses
Image result for shandur top
galloped along the river bed
then across the stream, beauty
grace power unleashed,ahead
I stood on Shandur Top, staring

this was the Roof…for in view
was nothing but peaks in glory
shining in the dawn, seconds
in time stood still, I felt as inside
a fairy story or a Western movie
but it was my own country
I was lucky to be there, traveling
in a jeep, because my dear father
was a doctor ,serving in the army
visiting the needy on mountain
tops…Chitral Hunza Nagar Gilgit
and gave us the chance to see,it.
