I stood at the top of the tallest mountain today
Moved my hand
To touch the passing cloud.
Felt that time had stood still for just a moment.
I glanced at the sun
And did feel its warmth.
The raindrops were all held together in a dark cloud.
Ready to fall so lightly on the earth below.
I stood at the bottom of the hill today,
Feeling the grass between my toes,
And the smell of the wild flowers,
So heady in the air,
The breeze from the mountain caressed my face,
And I felt alive once more.
