Mountains of the Past.

a more than one-lined response to C. Duhnne’s prompt, with thanks to Kathy.


I’ve been there when I was a kid
but I had no conscience back then, 
so I don’t remember, except what I see in the photos;
I remember though from my history book a Mogul built in the vale
the Shalimar — the Adobe of Love!
three centuries after Amir Khusron wrote in Persian,
‘if there’s paradise on Earth
it is this, it is this.’

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
