Cloud Piercers

The Indigenous People
called them 'Cloud Piercers'

Majestic giants standing stately tall

Their heads above the clouds
Shrouded in a billowy white blanket

Looking down on such insignificance below

Bachelor and Hood two of their names

'Cloud Piercers' to this poet's mind Somehow more fitting


Comments: If you have traveled to Oregon, you know how Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachelor dominate the landscape, affect the weather, and are awe inspiring to behold. One can understand how early humans worshiped them as gods.
