The Accepting of Achievement. by 


Ben Nevis, Highlands, Scotland.

Again my love
you have now found
a double love in which to drown
The skyward and the earthward bound

That is not to say
that either two
the earthy or the cloudy vision
are favoured with what they see in you
or either seen with derision (you play with each as each does wonder)

No more is like
In difference are respect in truth
combined in joy is what you seek
although a comfort and complete
these are not the early passions of your youth (when hearts broke and burst asunder)

Alas comparisons you cannot make
in between what you have found
You love each for its own sake
Both in the air or in the ground (and yet you see you are you afraid)

but distant dreams you cannot have
the sky games you play less blame
are safe because they are just that
nothing more or less than game (as in your own words you say)

whereas the earth on which you stand
Is closer if not less grand
you can have both is what you feel
to be grounded or in the sky less real. (be wary of where your passions lay)

I am Et in Arcadia Ego.

    I like the title, it’s relevant to what I’m thinking about at the moment so it made me smile :o)
    I like your poem. Maybe I’ve got an old fashioned idea of poetry but I’m always happiest with short clear rhyming – the rhythm makes it easier for me to follow and understand.
    This is new to see your recent images in a portrait format. Although the landscapes are beautiful, this view really focusses on and emphasises the height of the mountains. I do like the way you capture the snow on the peaks Ken, the fine white detail really shows the textures of the rock. Great simmering clouds and don’t think I haven’t seen the waterfall ;o) I’m curious about the three circles towards top right near the bottom of the last mountain…

  • The Ben Nevis from along Glen Nevis. The waterfall is the high falls. This I took from the low falls. Glad you like it.

    This is gorgeous, those lovely bubbling, almost “hot spring” clouds, and that spot of light nestled amongst the clouds and to top of the cake, the beautiful snow peaked mountaints, wowee … very beautiful Ken….

  • The highest in the UK Josie as I’m sure you know. Thank you so much for liking it. It is rather like a cake I agree.
