‘In the distance’

In the distance 
where the realm of heaven 
skims the earthbound land 
There rises a lofty wall of remote mountains 
hewn in granite 

Whose sharp features 
and steep inclines 
Grow soft in the lambent light 
of a mellow haze
That cloaks their rugged countenance 
in the gentle hue of another dominion 

As their pointed pinnacles
reach for the firmament 
and merge into the otherness
That veils the skies
in a dusky blue 
Which leads into yon infinity
