I wrote the following poem which inspired this image…
I am mountain
Do you fully, truly see?
As you walk my Northern face,
As you scurry through my leaves.
is it me you witness clearly, are you present here today?
It takes some time, explore some more
I beg of you to stay.
There are many rocks to overturn and kick from place to place,
they form safe paths to get around, did you see my gentle face?
Do you sense the spirit that lives in me and
all I have to give, are you thinking of another place as you look out from my ridge?
There’s nourishment upon my ground
a song within my breeze.
Can you feel my rhythms, twists and turns, the sanctum of my trees?
Do you understand the essence here
my valleys and my woods.
Have you spoken to my towering friends
and loved them like you should.
Lay with me, ask not a thing, embrace the silent presence
of souls before you finding peace and adding to my essence.
I am mountain, strong and proud and welcoming and kind,
Stay with me there’s so much more I promise you will find.
