EXERCISE Weekly Challenge #6: The Mighty Mountain

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Fluffy, Feb 2, 2015.

  1. The Mighty Mountain


    My apologies for the slight delay, though I'm sure no one minds. Fluffy can be pretty busy, sometimes.

    Anyway, onto my 6th challenge. Woo. I'm in the mood to write a poem or two using mountains as a theme! Use any poetry style you'd like for this one. Also, feel free to get creative with it. Make a tribute to your favorite mountain! Or ummm... Oh! You can write about camping in the mountains, hiking, going on adventures, mountainous weather, animals that live there... You can even write about how a person's face looks like a mountain. Sounds pretty cool.
  2. A tribute to my darlin', @The Butterfly. He yet again inspires me. xP

    The Woman on the Mountain

    The mountain where she lives
    is hers and hers alone;
    bit by bit, she climbed it
    with her own hands and feet.

    A cold sight from afar
    that gets warmer up close.
    Every ridge, every bump;
    they are marks of beauty.

    When her mountain trembles
    with an explosive rage,
    she endures. There's no storm
    that could send her away.

    'Tis a true and steady
    home. Full of peacefulness,
    security, and love.
    'Tis a home eternal.

    Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains (It is as Annie Dillard said, "But the mountains are home.")
    by Isaac James Flores

    Let us journey back
    to the mountains vast,
    where the shimmer of snowmelt glistens as
    silvery waters flow past.

    Let us journey back
    to the mountain where it all began;
    where the falcon circles,
    his tail feathers spread like a fan.

    Let us journey back
    to the mountain where wanderers come and go,
    wishing to be wanderers no more.
    If you wish it, it shall be so.

    Let us journey back
    to the mountain where antlers mark the trail
    to a place where all will be free;
    a place where all can be well.
