Scenery

I am not scenery,

but if I must be,

I am a landscape

too lovely

too vast

for a canvas.

~

I am a mountain,

immovable

insurmountable

uncompromising.

~

I am a river,

ever-flowing

moving swiftly or slowly

as I please.

~

I am a lake,

all that I am reflects

what you are

in your own eyes.

~

I am an ocean,

wondrous to behold

endless and restless

lovely and dangerous.

~

I am the sky,

kissing each horizon

inexpressibly

boundless and beautiful.

~

I am a constellation,

a collection of

thousands of shining

(if broken) pieces.

~

I am a galaxy

of oddities

of thoughts and quiet

loves.

~

I am a universe

contained behind

these burning

eyes.

~

I am not scenery.

And you are not scenery.

But together, we are all

something

beyond

sight.
