POEM: "Climbing Rock: A Meditation"

Climbing Rock: A Meditation

                                      .for the freaky mountain kids

Look along any line keep the light
any grip of angle know the hope

we are distracted

divine winds hum stand off don’t hug
first rule of salvation never hang from a rope

the subtle atomicities of evil

hold my cold flexed hand
maintain the grip on a winter day

where fear is not 

the summit is finally reached
days & nights they pass away 

the happy ending

evidence prominent 
witnesses numerous

the falcon circling us 

one will never say
I cannot do that 

old friend miraculous.
