measuring uphill

From a series of meditations for : the Pilgrim
Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

as you journey
pilgrim
the mountains
first seen in the distance
as small rises
on the horizon

emerge
tower and loom

blurred outlines
harden
assume a clearer definition

and yet
climbing is but the placement
of one footstep
ahead of the last

progress is still measured
by forward momentum

but the view from the summit
is superb
