Mountain Love Song

i love you
at a distance
standing bold
sky-lit and old
spine's curve and bend
crest's rugged end,
gnarly yet svelte 
your arched feet.

a bushel of clouds
plucked down
tucked in
eiderdown 
or whisper thin
floating away
hidden clefts, slow thefts
deep breaths
the mountain of you

without you it's
wandering blue
my eyes lost in sky
your arms embrace
my scars, your face
you are the ring
the rock, the thing,
the bridge between
seen and unseen.
