Under the Mountain

it feels like shelter,
nestled there,

under the mountain.

no ashes in the picture,
the land is sunburnt

short of ashes.

here we see what seems
to be a farmyard, nestled

under the mountain.

birds in their nests,
wolves in their dens,

lhey seem so safe,
cosy and secure.

cattle and horses
seem oblivious
to unseen dangers,

under the mountain.

nothing and nobody 
seems to see it coming, 
if it ever comes at all,

a distant future or
unreachable past,

never threatens us
if we are not looking,
unless maybe,

things are not exactly
what we expect.

under the mountain.
