Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Mountain Stream
 
(In the Scottish Highlands)

My interest never fades,
experiencing the scene.
Heather of all shades,
and grass so lush and green.

A stream meanders slow,
down from a mountain high.
The glitter and the glow,
as insects o'er it fly.

A slow and easy trek,
I hear the waterfall.
Up high I see a speck,
and hear a great stag call.

It's then I see the herd,
a dozen wild deer.
Of humans they run scared,
a good thing though I fear.

Along the stream I walk,
slowly up the slope.
It's not the deer I stalk,
but the view I'll see...I hope.

The swift stream shows the way,
as I take it's lead.
My footing's still okay,
'take care' the phrase I heed.

Three hours more I'll climb,
o'er rocks and grassy mound.
No need to think of time,
waterfall...the only sound.

Water flowing fast,
now from overhead.
Steep gradient at last,
locating where it's fed.

When at the water's source,
it's spurting from the rock.
I take a sip of course,
to savour...not to mock.

Through rocks and tiny cracks,
midst surfaces it breaks.
Patience water lacks,
the shortest route it takes.

Now gripping tight I lean,
into the rocky face.
Enjoyed when just a teen,
and I still love this place.

I slip and slide a little,
so stop and take a rest.
A rock face can be brittle,
each hand hold I will test.

I smile and look ahead,
not much further now.
Small track to use instead,
much easier...and how.

It's summer, so the peak,
doesn't have much snow.
Much danger it can wreak,
it's killed some folk...I know.

On the top I rest,
and see the all round view.
From this mountain crest,
a simple thing to do.

The sun is moving slow,
across a light blue sky.
I see the stream below,
with my naked eye.

I started way down there,
tracing that small stream.
Now I see the glare...
reflected sunlight beam...
