The Lofty Mountain.

The Learning in the Grounding

The Lofty Mountain.

Standing majestically tall rooted to the ground are the lofty mountains.

Climbing uphill is a task no doubt, as it beckons to ascend.

It tempts with arresting views from its mysterious mount.

Albeit with many harsh crags, spiky edges the and ablating glaciers to surmount

The tenacious spirit of the mountain imparts lessons for a lifetime.

In the journey is gleaned wisdom sublime...

What one sees from the top of the mountain is different from way down the valley .

A different perspective every view does carry

That in every different point of viewing

there shines a light on a different way of learning.

@Savvy Raj, Eloquent; I love the mountains~ "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature's sources never fail." ~John Muir, "Our National Parks".
