High Upon The Mountain

In response to dVerse Poets Pub MTB: Three Way Split
High, light, highlight

High atop a mountain peak
mountain goats climb
to find a tasty bit
of moss or grass or
anything green is fine

Light filters through trees
resplendent in winter
wearing mantles formed
by glistening diamond-like
Alpine snow crystals

Summer’s sunny warmth
melts the frigid landscape
a rare highlight to spy
a lone Goat traversing
cliffs with mighty grace

    1. I have only seen them at the zoo. Had hoped to see them in Yellowstone, but no luck. Thank you for the read Björn. 😊
