“Climbing enlightenment’s mountains
Sherpaless and lightening my load
with each step
I momentarily rest on this plateau
pondering the precipice.
Gaze at distant peaks
unknowing what lies beyond the next rise.
Thanking those who have helped my travel
those who lit beacons lighting paths
those who fell that I may avoid loose rock.
Firmly traversing my path I appreciate
the things along the trail
the smells, sounds, colours
the brightness & the darkness
the fertile silences.
I am present in my journey
open to see the less trampled
routes that lead
to more spectacular vistas
& enrapturing challenges.”
