The Reminder

the hills

closer  to the tips of the clouds


daring me to be powerful

reaching out


letting go

in tandem

can be delightful

stars beyond the clouds

start to seek


as much as I

seek them

Formidable sometimes

every step

Yet fear playing

the game

and the pleasure

is in the try

each one

each step

each glance

each clasp

standing at the hilltop

making me say

Get on with it

soar you will

as that is the art

you know well

stand firm

stand ready

and the wind

will take care of the rest!

One thought on “The Reminder

  1. stand firm stand ready and winds shall not shake you
    The game and pleasure is indeed in trying and not being just a fatalist

    very well expressed – you as always know how to give expression to your thoughts
