the

snowy

summit

the comforts

of the slow and

steady climb slip away

the air has changed

gazing off the windy peak

inside churns – excitement erupts

voices clamoring to be heard

Maslow entices me to take it to a higher level

Darwin implores – be careful, you’ve got to survive this

and all the insane monkeys screaming, “just go for it!”

it is the child who silences them all

for a moment he basks in

the feeling of this place

simple

pure

alive

quiet

off

he

soars

down the

mountain

like a

playful

hawk

knowing

not
