A Misty Hill

Not wanting to break the chain, I sit
In a stone circle, atop a misty hill.
Clouds hang low, bringing hushed tones
To verdant landscapes.
Gone are sunny summer days,
Replaced by red and auburn glints
Dappled across grey horizons.
Like steely legions marching to Gehenna,
Streaming wisps arc above and perform,
An aerial danse macabre.
As light begins to dim, a last promise
The ebb of day, tantalizes the spirit.
Alas, damp heavy air signals another fate
As soft breezes start to stir,
Through lush native grasses.
A black squirrel, a bold invader
Like a crusading knight in Holy Lands,
Collects warmth for newfound hearth.
Perched on a rock, at the edge of evening,
A regal raptor watches.
Not wanting to break the chain, I sit
In a stone circle, atop a misty hill.

    Thanks! First poem I’ve written in a while that’s more than three lines long…

    Very powerful image, solitude surrounded by the power of nature.

    This is an impressive piece. It flowed in a surreal sense. Almost as if we truly were on the outside of the stone circle listening to your words. The air was heavy with intent and purpose, yet I sense there is something more the reader is not aware of…Perhaps this poem took on spirit.

    enreal: Thanks so much for that. Perhaps the spirit of the poem comes from the place. It was written atop a misty hill, after all…
