Mountain Church

My brother-in-law coined the term “Mountain Church” for all the Sundays we went hiking in the beautiful mountains of Oregon. I have not had the pleasure of hiking, yet, in New Zealand. This stamp is so inspiring, it called for a Mountain Church poem. Savor the poem my dears. This is the last week of Na/GloPoWriMo (poetry writing month) 2018.

Mountain Church

time to be grateful
for all God’s creation,
for nature,
for life,
for mountains
and the forces that buckled them up
toward the stars.

mountain church
lift your arms
and your spirits
in reverence
Lie among the wild flowers
beneath the clouds
passing as life passes
in moments
moments of blue sky,
lingering snow,
smiling daisies.
Most of all,
swim in the green
at mountain’s feet,
swim in the green
to which we will
someday rejoin.
