Climbing a mountain,
the air blows cleanly around.
Nature connects to the heart,
An umbilical of earthly connections.
Trees, grasses, a goat or two.
The climb, the trek, the journey,
brings the joy. One cannot escape,
the essence of nature.
One day I will summit.
One day, my life’s journey achieved.
It is the goal of all, keep climbing.
Each step, a stone.
Each stone, a step.
The climb is the adventure.
