A Lover Letter to the Mountain

When I am with you I think of nothing but the beauty of the present moment. When I am with you I am not separate from you. I melt into your rolling hills, I become the particles of water that dance down your rivers, my spirit is light in your winds. Connection so deep, so ancient, that no words can describe the calling. I melt into your night skies, stars that sparkle and serenade me to sleep, your earth as my mattress.

The morning after my hair is tangled in a wild mess from your playful winds and smells like sticky sap. I pull out small twigs of pine needles, sweet reminders of laying on my back staring up at passing clouds that transition into the darkness of the rising moon.
