Thank you Ron for this rich offering..
the distinct impression i am left with is...

when God spoke out,
the mountains thrust themselves toward Him in adoring greeting.

they reached to Him with all of their might, that they might close the gap between them.

until they spent all that they had,

and have been resting there, together in unified silence, ever since,
loving and waiting.

people who are drawn to these mountains are made of the same fabric, and find themselves at home in the intense majesty and silence that is the true heart of the creature waiting to be filled.

as you said...
The sheer aloneness as a lookout combined with the silence and rock turrets in all directions does work its way into the inner life.
