adventure called for us in the cusp of morning
propelled from our bed-cocoons into dark, dreamy world,
we raced time while every minute, earth warming.
billows of cotton candy sky unfurled
before us to inspire wonder for sleepy eyes
and challenge our pace upon
steep, insecure inclines that would battle thighs
climbing to the goal of beholding sky-cracking phenomenon
each ladder rung and struggled breath brought us closer
to sit at the top in chilly anticipation.
a burst of light and the sun's sudden exposure.
we were honored in the glorious participation,
to join with the earth in a new beginning.
of renewal, creation was singing.
