Prayer for the Mountains

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Submitted by Beth Lapides, author of “Did I Wake You? Haiku’s For Modern Living”

I give thanks for the mountain I live by, that drew me to it, magnetized me.

I ask for the strength of it. To protect other mountains, which protect us.

I offer my heart to the ground disprupted.

I wait for guidance to help create the world in which we can live by and with the mountains peacefully.

Love to all mountains, and all the valleys that the mountains define.  In this moment and forever more.
