An Afternoon at Mt. Rainier

©  Robin Martin

The day was clear,
the mood was deep,
yet playful too.

The flowers sang to me,
the grasses glowed,
and the brook whispered--
tumbling rock over rock
on a steady path
beneath the towering mountains.

As I sat--contemplating--nay,
TAKING IN the POWER of the mountainside
(at the point where trees begin to disappear),
I wondered if the auras had always been there,
shimmering in a steady vibration,
(or was it just the heat that I was seeing)?

No matter. The power, the majesty,
still filled me with awe.

Yet even as I appreciated that
which was outside of me,
I felt the Truth--that it
ALL was part of me, Within.
