A fearsome warrior clad in icy armour
Guardian of our frontiers
Ruthless and invigorating
Beautifultiful and ugly
Peaceful and malevolent
Holy and unholy — sometimes all at once
The sublime majesty of mountains
Redefining our imagination, amongst a thousand clouds and thousand streams.
Looming larger than life, from morning light till moonlight
Rising up and erupting in our minds
It’s face adorned with wrinkles
A witness of the era bygone
Crouched, enormous and austere
Connecting animals who call it home
The trees growing on its hills, and, the people who attempt to climb it
The mountains are no more soulless piles of boulder.
Lonesome, lamentating like a ghost,
A dark silhouette against the clear blue sky
Encompassed in mist or lonely clouds floating leisurely by,
Serene solitude and untrodden sunlit summits
Mighty, majestic and standing tall
Representing impossible challenges, insurmountable obstacles
Hidden in tales of lore
Lofty mountains are places where the heavens and earth meet.
