Mountain Climber

A mountain climber

soaring upwards towards

the snow white


Breaths short, yet


Weaving in and out through

pines and birch

etching his way tediously,


perfectly painting his way.

Flickers of sunlight thoughts,

birds flying freely

gliding beyond his reach.

Night befell the climber

as he sleeps beneath

a living tree. Hoot owls

crying matefully into the night

dew drops sprinkling his

sandy balding hair.

Again besieged by the top,

so clear

in the new day.

Finally climber ascends to reach the tree tops

and without falter

finds his dream and fresh
