homeward bound





Stillness in a mountain range. Losing oneself there and taking no notice of others on returning: no blame.

The Lines (base to top)

Climbing the path step by step
Calves are beginning to ache
Twisting groin gives energy
Take it easy on your back
Not a word to anyone
Rest for a while at the peak


Mountain over mountain. Quietude. Attention turning inward.

Keep going, but tread lightly.
