Mother Earth`s Embrace

Mother Earth`s Embrace

I look upon the shrouded mounts

Their tops lost in hazy bliss

Soft shades of grey envelop them

A mother`s gentle kiss


The peaks are lost to mortal eyes

Gone are the trees and dale

She holds them closely to her breast

And shields them with her veil


Misty arms of Mother Earth

Embrace the hills I seek

Maternal clinch enshrouds them well

They sigh against her cheek

Thanks all. Isn`t that a lovely image? I found it on the web and it seemed to fit the poem so nicely. I wish I lived there in the summer too Mary Ann!

The photograph and the poem do fit together extremely well. As usual, I enjoyed catching up on your blog. I love your sense of humor.
