Mighty Rocks by Avery Wheeler

These mighty rocks
placed ancient and strong

who am I compared to these?

Mountains ominous
until one takes that first step
finds her secret paths
traverses the landscape

into the woods I went...
searching for god knows what,
for me, for a sign?
The stillness of the trail is like floating on hawks wings

keen and careening past lifetimes

then, I realize
that inside me  is a mountain
of untold strength

and I start humming a tune,
just for me
