Witness

Mountain Peak  (Bae Caernarfon,Wales. May 2014. M.A. Reilly).

Witness

 - Denise Levertov

Sometimes the mountain
is hidden from me in veils
of cloud, sometimes
I am hidden from the mountain
in veils of inattention, apathy, fatigue,
when I forget or refuse to go
down to the shore or a few yards
up the road, on a clear day,
to reconfirm
that witnessing presence.



from Denise Levertov: Selected Poems, by Denise Levertov -
