Parable Mountain I call to you in my high places where it is easy to forget your name. I call to you in lower places, where the earth binds me with threats. How easy it is to name you there as I am bent, cast around by wind Yet mysteriously stronger in the process.
Child You call me child even as I listen to my own silence. You have whispered to me on my concrete journeys inward and across space, reminding me of the unseen valleys ahead, hints at what really matters after all.
