Renhai Reflections 102: Looking Up, Down


Looking Up, Down

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (Solo)

An alpine hut
near the mountain's summit —
long climb's end.

Old limestone basilica —
moss at the wall's base.

The toddler's hands
reach up toward grampa's
empty lap.

Where we want to go to - that doesn't matter. But we want to go to - that's it. A very vital verse.

Best wishes

I like the perspective in this - the way to adult eyes a mountain summit is a long way up, but to a child so is a distant lap.
