Inspirational Thursday-Magnificent Mountains

You know, I grew up in the West where nature is bigger than 

mankind.  Where you remain humble in spirit because you are 

surrounded by magnificent mountains that stretch for thousands and 

thousands of miles. 

Where never ending blue sky and puffy white 

clouds seem to be within arms reach.

"Great things are done where men and mountains meet."
~William Blake~

Where natural beauty moves your heart and soul to ache.

Gushing mountain streams from melting snow cap peaks

race with abandon around curves and corners,

with absolutely no fear or wonder what their density might be.

Simple sweet serenity rests on each mountain ridge.

Cool, clear mountain lakes surrounded by pungent evergreen forests 

where  deer, elk, bear, wolf and eagles call home.  A gentle 

reminder for mankind that we are not the almighty.

Pristine mountain air, gentle sunsets and mountain breezes.  

Peaceful, calm, no storms of life, no rush of words, no ego's.

The essence of the magnificent mountains calms, 

quiets, reassures that all is well.

  11. Jemma,
    I've heard that Colorado was beautiful. Jess just visited Aspen, and said it was amazing. Isn't God's nature glorious? The mountains give me peace every time I visit, and I love to hear nature's song. I am fascinated by 'cloud' pictures, and these are just lovely.
