A Point of Defiance

As an island rising
Above the horizon
In an ocean of
Mist and fog

Mountain’s base is
Radiating with
Higher peaks still
Obscured

Like a point defying
And shying away
Into the abyssal blue
Into the choked sky

At the edge of
A valley
An inland empire
In a great canyon
Hearing the void

Sun rays smiting
Smoke asunder
A titan’s stone
Stoic face revealed

World defiant
