The Slanting Slopes | Living (and Dying) in the Mountains

When living in the mountains
Burying foundations on its slanting slopes
You will be somehow closer to nature
Not because you see the mountains out the window
But because you’ll be aware, of how easy
It is to slip off the slanting slopes
With all your floors doors bowls and plates
Returning to their homes, in the mud and earth
You will realise that you too live here on mortgage
It is but rented time, that will one day run out
And slip off the slanting slopes in time
And I hope just in that moment
You will start valuing your life
Realising that white it is still with you
Your time is, yours and only yours.
