In this poem, I have written about my mountain climbing experience in March, 2010.

*****

Following the plan,

Under the Spring sun,

I arrived at a mountain park,

Where nature and I become one.

.

Directed by a trial map,

I began walking uphill, non-stop,

Once in a while,

I pause to catch my breath and staring at rocks in a pile.

.

I took photos to capture the views below,

A lake, parked cars, driving path are in my view.

I would look up

To see how far I was from the mountain top.

.

There are moments of confusions,

There are sentiments of hesitations.

“Keep Walking”,

I hear my inner voice talking.

.

Near the highest spot,

I spied a young couple walking above,

Their body gesture showed their love,

How long I had been going up, nonstop, I forgot.

.

When t is all the way up hill,

It is against my natural will.

After I eventually conquer the obstacles,

I believed that these were miracles.

.

The mountain is half bare,

Pariare dogs make their stare.

Wild cows walk wild walks,

Naughty hares talk Happy talks…
