Purple Mountain

Purple Mountains, Killarney

Perhaps the imps were out last night

up where the slate rocks lie

reactions to the sun falling on the hills

people are pleased with what they see on the eye

lilacs , lavenders and amethyst shades – all those and much more

everyone visiting loves the scene – so off they do explore

Links

#Socs #Links

Like the loops of a chain keeping them together

Like the wires transmitting the news to your TV

Like the road that goes from A to B

Something keeps them together

Romans Rolling over Rural Scenes

Rocky paths for Stallions and Soldiers

Ripping through riverbanks

Miles of track traversing the country

Making its way from Manchester to Middlesex

Mighty juggernauts moving from north to south

Somethings keeps them together

Traversing over hill mountain and dale

To get to the office the shops or the coast

Taking the most direct route possible (sometimes via a tunnel)

Delays ?

Daily occurrence – as

Double time spent fixing holes or faults

Reactions to Roadworks

or leaves on the line ? – Revolutionary

Rolling up to your Destination by bus not train

Mountain Meadow

Mountain Meadow created by inky

Mountaineer came

out of his wintry cave, the summit conquered

up on the top of the hill, had been nothing but snow, but

now those seeds sleeping under the snow had

torn through the safety of the soil

and provided a lovely view for the climber to see

in time, he’d enjoy the fruits of his triumph, but for

now he was enjoying – his first sight of spring

Stacking

Stacked Stones – or Dwarvish Artworks ? (Image SC Vincent)

Up above the basalt hills

some creatures they were playing

they thought they’d be safe up high in the clouds

so they just carried on wi their stacking

Little flat and greyish rocks

stood on top of each other

one mountain dwarf enjoyed the fun

so he called on his brother

And together – they made something – oh so high

and other dwarves – round th’ hills – said they wanted to try

so they all joined in under cover of the cloud

and built something the village of dwarves were all proud

and to save the towers of which they had built

they left walkers message – down in the silt

“Artwork by mountain folk – please do enjoy”

“be careful around them – and do not destroy”

Foreboding

#promptuarium #picture #prompt

It hovered over the mountain

even on the sunniest of days

rainbows never ventured near

And rangers would keep a countin’

the numbers caught up in the loss of rays

as people would just disappear

Local ramblers stay on the ground

while trackers and huskies searched around

but apart from odd footprints – nothing to be found

Was something living up on that high ground

taking the climbers – without a sound ?

till they find out – they’re staying off that mound

Stalagmites and stalactites

The water moves on

Through the open mouth

Of the mountain cave

As the water drips

And occasionally drops

On the rocks it stops

Adrift from the rain

Now clinging to the rock

Dragons canines shine

Little creatures cling

To the old mighty dragon

Safety in numbers

As moonlight shines on

Each pearly white, the minerals

Hold on for dear life

Flowing

Who needs evian ?

Coming live from the finest aquifers

rolling and travelling through rivers and streams

filtered through Mountains, Limestone and granite

and stored in great lakes and reservoirs

the purest and freshest water

and its coming direct to the tap

Ascending

Climbing

As you head up the hill

Something carries you on

Crevices becoming the perfect hand holds

Engaging with the rock

Noted men before you have attemped this face before – but

Deny you your moment of glory ? not a chance!

In fact – they’ll be all hearing you yelling your achievements

North to south, East to West – as you

Get to the summit top
