Mountains Form by Jeff Flesch

I rest easy

in the long, and the short

of the mountains


a symbol of strength, and of change

releasing osmosis


the world above, and below

a cascading river of love

and of ambiguity, both of which

you and I

already know

    Jeff’s poetry indulges the mind and spirit to dig into what they have always known. The realization that the significance of existence is much greater than what we experience on a daily basis. Mountains are indeed majestic and strong, nature’s marks of endurance and symbols of gradual change. The rivers flowing from them sustaining life and its sanctity.
    Congratulations Jeff!

      Thank you so much, and always, Terveen. Mountains are such a source of inspiration. I agree with you about their majesty and strength. I’ve lived around so many in my life, and each one has gifted me something different. So much fun! 😊
