Climbing Mountains

The shadow from this giant,
covered half the earth
in diminished light.

So I climbed,
to reach
the brighter side….

but, arrived
in the dead of night.

Ian Bowen

Rock Climbing

Climb on dear friend, reach for that hold
Move past the signs of failing strength.
Now grip tight that cutting fold-
One move up the rocky length.
Tight clutching firm and breathing hard,
One step closer to the end,
Your mind firm set on pulling through.
Drive on, drive on my dearest friend,
Ignore the pain of fingers scarred
Climb up the rock to conquer you

William Mcgehee
