Pyramids of silver ( for Poetry Potluck)



slow evolution

of muscular peaks

earth meets the sky

and butterflies dance

in a forgotten valley

a landscape of dreams

so majestic and tall

hiding  secrets

in untamed glory

of you and I


we walked the shore

my shadow and I

untrammelled beauty

white crescent of beach

crashing waves thunder

in a pyramid of silver

her carpet of blue

lonely desolation

in majestic thoughts

of you and I
