I am Rock
Solid,, imprisoned by time.
Bleached by desert winds unchanging.
I am tree of forest green
Stretching deep inside mother earth.
Wind song plays me in gentle dance.
My crowning limbs embrace the sky.
I am fire of warm embrace.
I am the kiss of sun on face.
I am salmon
Fighting gravity of river
heeding Soul's instinctual call.
Risking all - to reach for home.
I am mountain.
Weathered by season's brutality
A hidden glacier from deep within
Yields to the touch of midday sun.
Releasing a stream of tears
Down valley's of time
Until we reach home-
The ocean of Love and Mercy.
