The Stillness of the Mountain

The Mountain stands still

While the River meanders  

Always on the move

Am I a Mountain?

Can I stand still 

Can I be happy in this stillness?

Am I a River?

Eternally on the move

Knowing the journey never ends

From the Highest Snow peaks 

To the Deep Blue Oceans 

Always flowing 

Even my calmness has movement

No satisfaction is ever reached

I finally became a cloud

But the clouds can be ferocious 

Thunderous and stormy

I was dropped back to the land 

My journey started all over again

I yearn for the stillness of the Mountain

Perhaps one day …
