Trials

Trials

sweet as Antipodes halfway up my knees
I'd passed the elbow of the Eiger.. North Side
like a tiger.. onto Everest..
a moment on the crest
intoxicated belated Torus
and the Carpathians before us,
breaching kilamanjaro,
and then the summit the final
scenario, I didn't see the wood for
the tree till Mohamed came,
and pointed here is your Armagedon..
and I've the fear of God in me

Thank you.. It means to me after one milestone is completed there rises another just as big
