The Climb


The above photo was taken at a ‘lookout point’ on top of Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park

THE CLIMB

I gazed across

spacious peaks

To their summits’

Broad incline

Climbing with my eyes

Up towering heights

To heaven’s

Clouded skies

Then descending

Down I came

To stand upon

The tundra’s blowing plains

Of mountain meadows’

Lush, green carpet

After recent rains.

Where to behold such majesty

can one find this, and wonder

if there be any other

greater than all I see.
