Topic: Mountains (09/20/04)

TITLE: Conquered

Your Majesty crowns creation,
Like a mountain rising high,
The ultimate inspiration
For created being, I.

Your depths I cannot fathom;
Your heights I cannot scale;
Your crags I cannot navigate;
Iím prone to fall and fail.

Your timelessness so glacial;
Your wonders my delight,
From the needles of the pine trees
To the lofty, rocky blight.

I would begin to climb You,
With steady step and slow,
But not to reach the pinnacle,
For I canít yet see Your goal;

But rather to have known You,
In all that You will show,
To find that as I climb Your face
Your features I may know;

And steady, still ascending,
Throughout my final breath,
I have not conquered You, Lord,
But conquered, I may rest.

I was where your poem describes and when I finally gave up and said "Lord I have done a terrible job, it's your turn to show me what You can do. And boy did He ever show me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great expression of your awe toward God. I can feel your gratitude and it warms my heart with the glow of His love reflected in your beautiful expression of love and adoration.

A few rough spots, but well worth reading. Some of it is a bit inscrutable, but what is poetry if not sprinkled with a bit of vaguery?

Thanks for posting.
