Mountain Spirits

Mountain Spirits

The spirits of the mountains awaken at night

they are cloaked in darkness hiding the vibrant colors that twinkle within

an unnatural light fills the sky for this is a night unlike any other

it is a night that stirs what is dormant prompting it to awaken

the star light is bright enough to see clearly without blinding the spirits

for centuries, millennia, the spirits have waited for this night

sleeping patiently in their adobe of stone, mulling about what they’d do when they’d be finally free

and now, suddenly, everything becomes possible

and tomorrow their mountain bodies will be clothed with their dearest dreams



“Mountain Spirits” is my first acrylic painting
