My Father

by Harriet Geller

He is a pillar, my father,
A white marble monolith shouldering the sky.
He is a rock burnished by the sea,
My father, my anchor.
He arises from the mantle of the earth
Immovable, eternal support.

He is a mountain invading the clouds,
The massive strength of the ages.
I am the oread of his forests.
I cavort in the rarefied air at his highest altitudes.

His implacable substance is the core of my expanding universe.
I uncover new pathways on his slopes
And abandon the barren relics of my childhood
By the wayside.

This poem appeared in the Winter-Spring 1994 IPA Newsletter.
