Just me and the mountains,

nobody around

Not a person in sight,

and the only sound

is the wind overhead

in the leaves of a tree;

Just silence to hear,

and beauty to see.

I treasure these moments

of solitude sweet,

high out on a ledge

where earth and sky meet;

where there’s silence to hear
