Among mountains–

Flow like a drop of dew from a leaf.

Feel yourself spread as you land on the ground.

Calm reigns in your core.

Look up, realize you are small.

Insignificant. Just a spot of dust in the grand scheme.

Marvel, breathe it in.

Nature’s work in the making.

Coolness impossible as a smile spreads.

So tiny am I to be surrounded by such beauty.

So tall am I realizing this.

Lush rock. Towering trees. A small insect crossing my path.

Lungs spread again, my spirit is home.

At mountainous peace among giants.
