LOST MOUNTAIN (poem)

Addressing you
by your true name,
calling to you
from the highest peak
above persistent low cloud
and heavy weather,
is the voice
of Lost Mountain
singing a song of lament
for your absence,
sad for the love
it can no longer share.

So subtle is the melody
that to imbibe it,
your heart becomes an ear,
and your mind becomes an eye,
and your eyes become fingers,
and your hands are therefore left
to be lips,
lost for words,
pressed together,
still and upright,
so as
to at least
humbly mirror
such a quiescent gesture.
