Mountains


“Soon you’ll be sitting on top of the world,

dancing upon the mountains like a flame.

Climb if you will, but remember

going to the mountains is going home;

wilderness is a necessity.

The mountains stood hushed

like devout worshippers waiting

to be blessed,

and you stood there,

half in love with yourself and

half in love with oblivion.

What are men to rocks and mountains?

In the midst of eternal change,

they were absolute unity,

brimming with life;

the mountains, our masters and

we, their slaves.

The longing mountains are

the most grounded;

climb the peak and

you will know no hardships.

Go to the mountains,

whether to chase angels

or flee demons,

go.”

Prompt: Mountain
