For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

The Lion of Safed

scent of pine
ascending mountains
forest slopes
exhale the lion's
devoted prayers

The Ari, or Lion of Safed, is considered the founder of modern Jewish Kabbalah, see:

The Tree of Life: The Palace of Adam Kadmon - Chayyim Vital's Introduction to the Kabbalah of Isaac Luria

A little bit of Turkish: Dağ (Mountain)
Dağ dağa kavuşmaz,insan insana kavuşur.
Mountain will never meet mountain, but man may meet man (again).
(So be careful how you treat each other)
