“Mountain Medicine” by Sinead McAteer

mountain medicine

on the road again
through the mountain pass,
I have travelled
in this wild landscape
a thousand times.

so many questions distil into one
– how do I belong?

a familiar sinking feeling
invites me
to meet it
and I do.

inside its empty centre
a presence is pulsing,

– stay quiet
mountains are speaking
of their silent power,
dignified in solitude
belonging wholly to themselves.
