My Massive Friends

 

?

I’m in the company of my massive friends

And their shimmering mirrors that ripple and blend

These northern pyramids into precious diamonds,

Uncut and rugged, a geometric prism.

They lend me their spirit and just for a minute

I’m completely released from my mortal prison.

*

?For cathedral county is where we are.

They stretch and lean and reflect as far

As you’ll ever really need to see,

My massive friends protecting me.

*

?The paradox of nature’s dance,

Their beauty and their malevolence

As they terrify and menace me,

Yet I feel that they look after me

With their distant summits and crashing scree.
