Mountain Air

Standard

I sleep under the open sky.

I beckon

The night mountain air come take

Me away.

I wish to drift through the trees

The pines and the rocks;

Dance over cliffs and through valleys

By the light of the moon.

Invisible and silent.

I will caress the wings of the owl as she hunts;

I am the cool air the wolf inhales deep,

That which brings the longing and power

To her howl.
I beg the wind

Come drench my soul

And take me home.

October

October sky.

i see the air as the breath

leaves my lips.

tree roots set themselves

deep and steady

ready for the chill to come.

branches reaching

to reassure one another.

inside lifeforce welcomes all stages of life,

happy to greet wind and rain

snowfall and sunlight.

living to live

and bring great joy

to earth and sky.

i touch the tree and know,

i

 know we are not so

different and i am thankful.

Always Held

Standard

I have been the waves that carried you home

When you were lost at sea.

I was the the rain that fell upon your

Weary head

And

Quenched your thirst.

I have been the desert that left you dry and helplessly

Crawling;

The oasis in the sand.

I was the sky that held you up so long ago

And the stars you have wished upon.

But

In this life;

I am the arms that hold you.

Yes,

My heart has always held you.
