avalanche

by Philippa Jane

from the peak the city below is
a murky sea, places and passersby
lost in the swell.

i come up for air.

oh, to expel it all in one breath!
to disturb the mountains
and matter.

Profound capture Philippa. Reminds me of Lord of the Rings, but hits much close to home. I can really empathize with this piece in how it captures the human condition.

I like the double hit I get from the last two lines.
