I remember Ten-Strike Mountain
For its huge snow covered peaks
Its massive body reached for miles
-it was a marvelous sight to see.
I remember the thick forests
That covered half the mountain side
The man cut the forest down
Only to grow back twice as high
I remember the many streams
That winded and twined into rivers
They formed hot springs in July
And huge ice rinks in December
I remember the many caves
That ran hundreds of miles deep
This meant a place to rest in shade
Or a bear waking from his sleep
I remember Ten-strike Mountain
-the widest mountain range
I recall when I first went
And why I’ll never go again.

I can see you, but I'm not sure if what I see is really you, because the shapes and colors swirl reality around until i'm not sure what is real and what is fantasy, and then I try again, and it's a different picture every time...

ten-strike mountain=ten strikes of lightning on a mountain, hence the statement, why i'll never go again. I know you should never take my writing literally, but on rare occasions, it is quite literal.

I like this, for some reason it reminds me of Marengo Cave, though I don't know why, since I'd like to go again....I love it!
