“”Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you…while cares will drop off like autumn leaves….” —John Muir
Away is a Place
Away is a place I am longing to go.
It does not matter where.
Maybe the sun will shine all day
or rain might cloud the air.
Within a restless, rampant mind
that traps such fear inside,
along with loneliness and doubt,
there’d be nothing to decide.
Away is where I need to go,
away from all I see,
and maybe there I’d find at last
the one who could be me.
