The Mountain Top

The path up the mountain
leads to the top

Where do you go from there?

in the wilderness
every step takes
you further

from grassy hills
to tall
dark pines
surging brooks
thick brush
jagged cliff
green clearing
wild red flowers
cold rough moss

as you go further
you approach the center
of limitless
earth and animal

fawns running
buzzards circling
mosquitoes humming
crows cawing

What path can take you
to that center?

This way is pathless
this journey is endless

when you reach the source
you will find yourself

You are at the top of the mountain
go ahead
and take the next step
