Through the ages, you have cast a spell on man
Ancient to modern, from caves to heroes
Fascinated by your glory.

Thrilled by your sights and sounds
Looking behind and beyond your physical beauty
The man looks at you, and another looks through him.
The mind particularly sensitive and receptive

To your charm
The belief of Shiva is piece of symbolism of mountains
For the dignity composed and kept.
The love for mountains, virgin and calm
The heart melts for it till the dusk of the day
The night beauty when it’s away
Till the day’s dawn.

The mountain waves like an old breeze
The mountain rises like a small hill
The big wind swiftly leads the breeze
The call of mountains, so perennial and irresistible
Like a pleasure or a challenge.
The tall rocks conceal secrets within them;
Making men unravel it.
Every rock is a problem
Every rock is a question!!

    I remember reading “Paths of Glory” by Jeffrey Archer, which was a true story about a mountaineer. Do read it if you haven’t till now.
    And now this poem brought back those memories! I haven’t yet seen mountains. The only geographic landforms of high elevation that I’ve seen are hills! 😀

    Stoic and solid is what mountains mean to me. They stand resolute and sturdy to all the perils that they experience, rain or storm. Loved your beautiful take with a touch of mysticism to it.

    I loved this “.. The call of mountains, so perennial and irresistible Like a pleasure or a challenge….”
    Mountains have witnessed years of change, if only they could speak…

    I grew up with the mountains keeping a watch over me 🙂 Did you know that like the sky and the water, even the mountains change color? It’s same yet different – rock steady yet unpredictable.

    Every mountain poses a question and holds secrets within.
    That’s an interesting take on mountains 🙂
