Visionary Poems

The granite walls 
Of the impassive mountain range 
A fortress in the midst of nowhere 
Rose aloft into yonder heavens 

Rugged of heart 
And inscrutable of countenance 
Ever remain these silent monoliths 
Stoics each one 
And proficient in endurance 

They leaned into the pale rays
Of a thin sun of diaphanous gauze
As its warming flames auroral 
Did flicker about their cold escarpments 
For them to warm and to restore 
In the brute cold of a vernal night
As it hovered patient 
At the edge of the horizon 
Where it awaited the clarion call from on high
For to denote the changeover diurnal 
When darkness to light does turn
And slumber is forgot awhile
~ d.a.simpson ~
