Craggy jagged giants, chiseled and slashed.
What unseen sculptor divined your magnificence?
you tower above humankind,
almost barren of vegetation, so steep are you.
Silent sentinels of time.
Generations and generations more
have you keenly watched,
streaming tearful waterfalls of lament.
Disbelief in man’s inhumanity to man.
Might you remind us, teach us?
Despite glacier carved differences
you stand together in strength,
forming one grand monolith
overcoming the tests of time.
