Mountain Air


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.

What Adventures We’ve Shared


Oh what adventures we have shared.


We have climbed mountains

And sang in sweet unison cheers of victory

As we arrived at the summit.


We have crawled through muddy,

Murky valleys

And rejoiced at the sight

Of the rising sun

As the morning air filled our lungs with hope.


We have laughed until we cried

And our bodies and bones have trembled

As sorrow has wracked us to the core.


We have stood in silence,

Watching the sun kiss the horizon


All the while

Quietly anticipating the realization of sweet dreams coming alive

In the wake of tomorrow.


And on each adventure,

Each detour,

Each long dry straightaway,

Every joyous celebration,

Every tiny step forward,

Each slip backwards,

Whether you have been through a portion

Or this whole amazing




Thus far,

I thank you.



I am slowly
Learning to have compassion for the girl

That believed she had no voice.

The girl that was afraid to shine
Or make a sound.
Who had been beaten down.

Who had almost disappeared from


She will always be a part of me.
She was not weak.
After all
She carried me on her own.
On every twist and turn.
Mountains and through valleys
She carried me.
She pulled me up off my knees.
She dug me out of the shadows

And pushed me

Into the light.
Lifted my gaze up to life.
Through sun and storms.
Through my entire life.
She carried me.
Now it’s my turn to
Carry her.
To love her and I realize what I thought

Were her weaknesses,

Led to my strengths.
