Warrior Poet Circle: Finding the Place

Up above the misty mountain
Where quieted souls have come to rest
The heights have been climbed,
Treacherous steps all taken
No more striving, thoughts abound
Melting into the wonders surrounding
Drinking in the wind-whipped drops
Reflecting on the life in valleys
Sun-drenched songs we’d sing again
The quiet feeds my aching soul
As whispers of eternity perk my ears
I breathe the mist and hold it deeply
As if to store the grand refreshing
No more seeking, I am filled up
Carrying the strength of a higher way

You’re my cave to hide in,
my cliff to climb.
Be my safe leader,
be my true mountain guide.
Free me from hidden traps;
I want to hide in you.
I’ve put my life in your hands.
You won’t drop me,
you’ll never let me down. –Psalm 31:3-5 (The Message)

  1. Love the picture and the poem, Jason. Reminds me of the feelings I get when I hike up mountains in Czech. :D

    • I’m sure it’s beautiful there, Jason! I would love to go sometime. I’ve been to Germany many times and loved it, but I’ve never been in that particular part of Europe. Thanks Jason. :)

  2. Encouraging and beautiful!

    • Thanks so much, TC!

  3. Awesome poem… Makes me want to be on top of that spiritual mountain.

    • We get to go up in worship and prayer and “come back down” to a hurting world to offer strength and healing. He’s such a gracious God! Thanks Floyd.

  4. Great stuff, a very vivid picture painted through words. Thanks for sharing Jason!

    • I had actually looked through my pictures I’d taken for some inspiration and this is the one that “spoke” to me. :) Thanks Philip!
