Have You Ever Held A Mountain?
PoetryBook - 2009
Mountains have been symbolic since the beginning of time. Our imagination has always given life to their presence. We name them, even feature them in our history and our lives.John Maling has created a poem about and around the life of a mountain that touches the very life that bursts from its core to the inhabitants and majestic surroundings. Each line resonates with the spectacular photography taken by Grant Collier and John Maling.32 inspiring and thoughtful lines enable the reader to climb with the author and photographers from the opening of the poem ... Have you ever held a mountainCupped it gently in your handFelt the texture of its ridgesSifted slow its granite sandBrushed its trees and touched its meadowsHeard its glaciers grinding downFelt wet and rocky muscleUnder flesh of green and brown? ... to the closing. And then, the reader will immediately start from the beginning, savoring the words and photos once again.
