The hair of the mountain is low clouds and fog.
Two cave openings make the eyes.
The mouth is a waterfall that pours out from the caves above.
The people who live there call it laughing mountain because the water chortles and wags its way down the valley
On holidays great fires are made inside
the eyes of the mountain and smoke and water pour out of its mouth.
Long ago there were wars over the sex of the mountain so now no one says,”whoooh look at her bright eyes ” or
“Look he’s blowing smoke!”.
No, they just gaze up in wonder and contentment with the peace they now enjoy.
