Stone Mountains

for Isabel

If one carries the mountain in one’s heart, to
pick up the stone is to pick up the mountain,
the world.

But for us, a stone is just a stone and nothing
more, just so much dead weight,
like a pack which grows heavier
with each passing step.

Half way up, half broken, turning back . . .
and the sound of stone mountains
just is—in the wind.
