Hum of the mountains
A symbol of gravity
I am filled with awe

Thank you! I wanted to do something gravity based, and mountains were my first choice lol

I really love the line "a symbol of gravity," because I think it hints at not only how big mountains are, but also how much mass they have. Often, people talk about the size of the mountains...their towering peaks and endless chains...but I like how you focused more on how "there" and present they are, if that makes sense. Like they're this huge mass, just constantly being pressed down; an ever-present reminder of gravity. It makes the mountains that you're describing seem much more real, almost like I can sense their prescence right next to me. It's just so unique how you described mountains from a different sensory point of view-- feeling rather than seeing :) Great work! Thanks for posting!! :)
