The Mountain Range

The mountain is stern. The mountain is smiling.

A silent challenge echos across deep valleys…

Are you strong enough?

Breathe deeply.

Jagged peaks peer  and pose their question…

Will you attempt the ascent?

Breathe deeper.

The breeze wafts a piney fresh scent in nostrils desperate for air.

A bubbling mountain stream overflows with contagious energy.

Drink deeply.

You’ll find no rest for your body here, but your soul may be refreshed.

Weary pilgrim, keep climbing.
