    ALPINE MEADOWS


    Dry, bare, gray skeletons
    still remain in the alpine meadow.
    They stand bowing down to the rocks
    to become the soil, the womb
    of sweet-scented new life.
    Their last moan can be heard
    in a warm gust of wind rising
    from a sun-sparkled river
    entrenched in jade-green walls
    far below this wind-swept crest.

    Protected by a rugged rocky ridge
    green trees stand at the edge of the meadow
    starkly contrasting the blue/white sky;
    their roots reach for blessed waters
    from streams gently moving
    deep within the living rock.

    Sparkling dew on wild flowers
    reflects a million coloured suns
    and beyond this pleasant canvas
    bare rocky peaks thrust upward
    marking the visible horizon.

    Softly, a gentle breeze speaks
    to my jealous soul, my hungry heart.
    My tired mind pauses in awe
    at revelations of beauty, of serenity
    awakening my natural senses:

    Finally, I can let go
    the gray skeletons of a past that’s gone
    and releasing myself to bliss,
    I approach the door to paradise!
