just a thought of mountains.

Have you ever stopped to watch the mountains? I do from time to time. I will stop and watch the mountains. I will observe them for signs of change. I wait for them to share their wisdom with me. I wait but sadly they are more patient than I.

I find myself wondering what it would be like to be as patient as a mountain, to wait eons for the land to change around me, to see the fire fly lights of peoples lives flare brightly for a moment then pass into darkness.

But were I a mountain I would miss the songs and laughter. There is no laughter of mountains. They do not feel the wind or sing the songs. They simply and patiently watch the world change. They will wait and watch me for a while as well.
