The Mountain Range
for Littleone Aries/Monica Linville the artist
music: “Inner Journey” Karunesh
Open up your wings because it is the starting point.
Looking high above the world, the wind whistles with a different sound.
It will lift you up, right out of yourself, if you can make it to the top.
Now sail over the pain and the things that don’t make sense, down on the ground.
Like a bird, flight- free you can go wherever it is you choose,
Just let your imagination make its own unplanned flight plan.
The birds and whistling leaves sing a chorus to your breeze
urging you to please, put away all fear and open up your nascent wing span.
A view of privileged eagle’s eyes, and yet you are let in today.
You do not hear the petty sounds of stressful city drama… boiling
You do not get pulled down from sour faces and troubled frowns,
Oh no, just let it go, and glide upon these currents lifting you uncoiling.
Sacred spot for all who ponder how it rose from nothing to its heights,
Each whispered secret from a pine, each bird call is your gilded invitation,
To take off in your fantasy flight and make it real… oh so real,
Soar and free yourself today, all of it is calling you, as you are part of this creation.
If the awe is choking in your throat it’s because you finally can see,
The mountain range is like a King who watches o’er his lands
And bowing in humble reverence you yield to your chosen destiny,
You are his favorite falcon being released now, from his royal gentle hands.
Open up your wings because it is the starting point
looking high above the world, the wind whistles with a different sound.
It will lift you up right out of yourself, if you can make it to the top.
Now sail over the pain and the things that don’t make sense down on the ground.
