The cairn and prayer flags at Seven Ravens Knoll,
Physical testimony to seven skiers who died
in an avalanche a few years back
taken by the Selkirk Mountains.
Today all hikers and skiers who pass by
To pay remembrance to the seven lives lost.
Seven Ravens Knoll acknowledges and pays reverence
to the magnificence of the mountains
that remain impervious to our human condition.
Rock neither judges nor has compassion for our earthly weakness.
It simply is.
