creek water cleanses my feet as i perch upon the stone where my transformation began.
a journey was unfolding unbeknownst to me, in that moment of still bliss.
i will always hold such fondness in my heart
for the miracles and mindful walks,
steep hills and soothing waters,
tall trees and fragrant flowers,
the silence and the meaningful talks.
and most of all, so much more than i could write or speak or scream from mountain peaks,
i am grateful for the way that this space holds me,
and my friends, ever-so sweetly, gently, and faithfully.
