marymarvels When last have you sipped on sky
Like morning coffee?
Tasted the tears in mist?
Held the world in your lungs
Like a flower?
When last have you breathed?

Lion's head, 2 years ago. My first mountain summit ever

marymarvels called

let us not live
on our outskirts
in fear of the forest
in our souls.
let us run,
take my hand:
past the trees
that look the same
past the wolves
howling our names,
to where we bathe
in clear streams and
sleep in our dreams
and wake to explore
ourselves only more,
let us not
live on our outskirts

let us get lost
in ourselves -
for all we may find
is home.

marymarvels "Follow me into the mountains, and I will show you things you have never seen before. You will find grand and small and simple and intricate beauty. You will feel further from your world, and closer to it. You will feel. And if you sit still, and listen closely, the mountain will show you all of these things within yourself."

marymarvels Responsibilities are planted
Like pine trees
Efficient tall and thirsty
Where once a forest grew.
Only this little bedtime poem
Flowers dainitily
Between two neat rows.
