Estes Park Mountain

These wild things,

People, creatures, environments, circumstances,

They are not meant to be tamed.

They are not meant to be understood.

They are meant to be heard, seen, felt, experienced.

Provide them with the space they request, desire and demand,

And you’ll be rewarded with beauty, wisdom, and depth.

Constrict, constrain, imprison, or try to diminish them,

And you’ll experience the fury, rage, and destruction,

As they destroy the obstacle in their path — you.

You cannot tame the wild.

Avoid the temptation to try,

And you’ll see the wisdom in it.
