MOUNTAINS: Overcoming Beijing Adversity

KNOWLEDGE

Often, like Dr. Zhang Biqing, of the Beijing penthouse controversy, we create our own mountains. What’s your mountain? Fear, depression, egotism, ignorance, racism, gambling, sex? However God is the supreme creator of “the majestic mountain”. A mountain beyond compare.
MOUNTAIN TRILOGY
1.
GOD’S PREROGATIVE
The Kentucky Angel asked God,
“Why make a mountain?
Wasn’t the valley enough?
God, you’ve got oceans of stuff.
Rivers of fish,
what else could you wish?”
The Blue Grass Angel chided God.
“Don’t you have enough to do
with forests and firmaments
and Nature’s brew?”
God smiled real plain
His Robe covered in mountain stain.
God giggled, “Hee-hee-heeeee, ha-hew!
I’m making mountains just ’cause
I want to!”

2.
MOUNTAIN EVERLASTING
Mountain high
Mountain low
Round the bend
The Angels know
Secrets of pain
a people strong
A people slain
Keeping histories
Of days gone past
though people perish
Mountain memories last.

3.
MOUNTAIN MISTRESS
God’s mistress
is a mountain.
A mistress
above all mistresses.
Loyal, beautiful.
Giving reckless
love without
abandon.
With natural things.
Her flirtatious streams.
Her whistling robins.
Her dewdrop tree lashes.
Her misty jeweled fog.
Her spectrum of greenery.
Her rainbow autumn breath.
For God knows
when a mountain hugs you
you remain forever caressed.

1.B
and once more and again
the Angel asked God
“Why make a mountain?”
God said,
“Because I can, because I can!”
