Across highways of water and wind

lies a mist-coated isle, where

purple mountain peaks sit, perched,

overseeing the rolling green hills

where the cicadas sing her a song.

Towering stone stairwells. The heave

still climbing, still. Soon she

reaches the top and feels

the soft soil of the summit,

comforting and soft like the

warmth of a hand over her back.

Ancient shrines lay waiting to renew.
