Poem #18 Mountain Rider

Mountain Rider

It looms slowly behind him and
Grows into a mountain of glassy green.
He begins to move with it,
Slowly at first –
Then quickly and smoothly.

His body moves into balance
With the movement.
The wall of green turns
Into a tumbling white mass of snow
Toppling over green glass.

He moves his body to the left
And feels the power of the mighty
Force behind him.

He leans to the right and
Darts the other way.

Then down the cascading
Wall of green-mixed snow
He slides.

With a crash the wall grows tame
And sinks timidly into its
Golden home –
Weary from its long journey.
