Mountain Ledge

Angela Crabtree 1982 (maine)

Mountain Ledge

A gentle whisper flow's through the air and into my lap. Your face appears in the skies above me. Your voice talks to me in my dreams. I see you as an eagle flying free, soaring through the heavens above. Standing on the mountain ledge as you, I close my eyes and see myself running with the wolves, running wild with nature. The earth underneath me seems to become a part of me. I feel I know the sky and earth better than I know my own human thoughts. Your whispers come back to me, only this time in my native language. You call me by my native name, “Sierra". You call for me again, on the mountain ledge. My mind and spirit still with the wolves, I begin to open my eyes. A single tear running down my cheek for all mothers of nature and sky. The eagle soars by me one more time, as the wolf howls at the moon. Trying to tell me that I am always welcome, I stand. I stand at the edge in the night sky, staring at the moon as my soul goes to the trees. I want to stay one with you and one with the earth. I leave the mountain ledge better knowing who I am.
