Peace in the Mountains

Angela Crabtree 1982 (maine)




Peace in the Mountains
Soft whispers of wind running through her long brown hair.
The sun's beaming arms reaching down, touching her copper toned skin.
An eagle soars through the sky in the distance.
It reminds her of peace here in the mountains.
Wolves are howling off in the distance.
She takes in a deep breath.
It smells of crisp clean air, with a little mist off the lakes below.
The animals start gathering near, coming together.
They stand and stare off into the horizon.
She feels the hurt of her people.
They are tired of being hunted.
Each animal represents one of the.
The eagle stands for peace and spirit.
The wolf stands for tranquility and togetherness.
The bear stands for strength and instinct.
These animals are all one and the same.
They stand there together fighting.
They want their lives back.
The sun sets, the animals run back in the forest.
She goes home.
