Mountain Spirit

I find myself longing to go back every time I can
That temple nestled between the hills in the mountains
The gentle hush of nature and great open skies
Away from the city, away from the noise

I always find myself in awe of that place
When sitting inside in complete silence and reverence
The incense burning with wisdom and sage
As if in the stillness you can hear the light

Religion or creed doesnít matter up there
Itís just you, the wind, and whatever creature scurries by
Because in the silence that nature presents
Thereís a sense of peace and reflection

The Buddhist temple feels like a haven
A quiet place where anyone can visit, listen and meditate
Because in the silence you find some guidance
You begin to understand yourself a little more

Iím always entranced by such a beautiful space
Spellbound by the mystery and wonder of calmness
Breathing in the mountain air just to rejuvenate
Like spiritual nourishment for the soul
