The Cascades Don’t Crumble

Today’s prompt is to write about something very large. I was missing my west coast mountains a bit today.

Rising far above the valleys
Rising beyond the fringe of clouds
Rising high over the timberline
Rising where finches have ceased to chirp
Rising where mountain lions are forbidden
Rising where the snowdrift exposes bare ridges
These mountains hoard stories
These mountains impede the pioneers
These mountains inspire climbs
These mountains, through their sheer size
Remind us to share love
Remind us to comfort
Remind us to forge community
These mountains remind us to rise
