Ascending

Climbing

As you head up the hill

Something carries you on

Crevices becoming the perfect hand holds

Engaging with the rock

Noted men before you have attemped this face before – but

Deny you your moment of glory ? not a chance!

In fact – they’ll be all hearing you yelling your achievements

North to south, East to West – as you

Get to the summit top

Precipice

Salford 17th May 2017

Precipice

perhaps it wasn’t the greatest idea

resting your legs of the edge of the cliff

everybody is now yelling at you to

come away from where you are sitting

in case the floor beneath you happens to come away

pulling yourself up and sitting somewhere safer

is a great idea, maybe that way people

could enjoy the view and not be

engaged in the story you created

The Mountain

A Bronze-winning Acrostic (written by me) from Allpoetry

Maybe you would think it foolish,
Over hills and across dales he went with his tools
Under ridges and across crags – all to
Navigate the ultimate prize
Towards greatness he headed
And facing torrents of wind and rain
Ice and snow – and occasional blizzard, he
Negotiated his nemesis – celebrating with a tin of soup at the summit
