Crowned

We strode among the mountaintops

laughed at its hearty depths

full of dangerous beauty, we dared

each other to the edge

 

A man of bold provocations

that only I could hear

“I am King of Earth and Sky,” he said,  “all this world is mine.”

 

He knew the mountain’s song

and weaved his legs between mine

he was a master of the dance,

sight and sound.

 

When his stomping feet

pierced the ground,

he threatened all with his daring

 

I slid myself beneath his toes

to stop the world from breaking.
