Those hills, so close, and
yet so distant.
Looking at them, you forget yourself,
for one timeless moment,
overwhelmed by their overwhelming beauty.
Standing there, you grow aware
of the age of the earth,
and of your own
They will remain, and you, with your
sorrows, pains, and worries, will pass away.
They will be there, as they
since long before you came.
