At the base of your mountain

I am awestruck

Frolicking down her snowy slopes

I am honored

Before the waters of your ocean

I am tiny

Playing in her gentle waves

I am free

Beneath the boughs of your trees

I am small

Eating their sweet fruits

I am grateful

Watching your eagles soar

I am in wonder

Being friends with your creatures

I am happy

Feet on you, Earth

I am supported

Knowing I am part of you

I am humbled
