Himalayas


The Himalayas
Abodes of snow
Truly the ranges
Where gods reside.

Sun keeps crawling
Across the peaks
Gorgeous beauty
Beckons the climbers.

Hillary and Norgay
Took no rest
Until they reached
Mount Everest.

There were others
Who scaled the peaks
And there were many
Who could never reach.

Nanga Parbat
Kanchenjunga
Mount Kailash...
Just a few peaks.

Ganges and Indus
Mekong and Yangtze...
Perennial rivers start
And civilization flows.

Pangong Tso
Gurudongamar
Manasarovar...
Lakes galore.

Himalaya mountains
Panoramic views
Invite us all
To behold and rejoice.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
