NPM 2018: Notes on a Mountain, Part 2 (Day 11)

Notes on a Mountain, Part 2
Written March 12, 2018
Edited March 31, 2018

We walked to Alki
and threw into the Sound
a set of lost keys,
never to be found

And I wish that I
could fling myself too,
gleaming and graceful,
into that gray-blue

You can move mountains
with enough faith, they say,
but is movement enough
to fall completely away?

To become a boulder, then a rock,
then a pebble, and then sand,
until I’m just part of water

forgotten by land
