    High Mountains Walk Elevated Heights

    even when wild all
    the birds have flown
    alone is never alone

    accompanied by clouds
    in high mountains gazing
    we walk elevated heights

    Portrays a gentle relationship between the mountain and the poet. Nice calming effect to the reader. Simple and short and easy to remember and play back in your mind from time to time. I wish that it had more meaning or that I understood the real meaning that it has. (Report) Reply

    Maybe it's fine as it is, without hidden meaning.

    Birds have given wings to fly, restless their nature never keeps themselves tranquil in peace, they are specially made for flying. But Mountain has a strong root to stay on the ground as the human being has its own nature to follow the ancestors and the strength to keep the strict singularity about their human root also. So, poet transmits his own idea as a man should do. If the root digged firm into the ground that could be the shelter of different birds in different time. So no sad I feel in reading this one.
