Monument Hike

Inhale... Exhale...   

Piercing wind across the face 

One leg heavily makes its way across the other

The climb becomes steeper, weighty with each step 

 A pilgrimage towards a ‘shrine’

becomes gratifying once you’ve reached the top 

Exhale one last time... 

and glance  at what lies behind… 

Scenic to say the least

The tiresome journey is soon
