The View

at earth’s peaks
all languages are spoken
winds are open to all
and newcomers from everywhere become equally connected to holiness

at earth’s peaks
love is interpreted by dust
the rocks are the poets
and new colors are invented in the ancient light

at earth’s peaks i find you again and again
old mysteries are solved by the unfolding of new ones
and the silence is testament to our rotations

at earth’s peaks
families are made in the smiles of strangers
lovers take flight
and humanity is marked in stillness
