To change things up: some Haiku

Today, breaking from the usual vacation-based poems of the week, I give you a series of Haikus. The trip was beneficial for many things, but my Haiku especially saw a lot of work while I was away. Enjoy:

Man climbs high above

But the earth climbs higher still;

Highest rides the sun.

Each step, hotter fire

Each breath, a chiller embrace—

The sky is thinning.

Fourteen thousand feet,

The world becomes a crystal

Despite summer heat.

  1. Hello!

    I am new to your blog and am just pottering around your pages! I really like what I see so far! I love this poem. It brings back memories of the first big snowy mountain I ever saw which was in France. I was awestruck. Thanks!

    • Thank you so much! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen so far. And France is among the many, many destinations I would like to see one day myself.
