Enliven The Weathered Life

Atmosphere stratified over billions of years Envelopes the Earth with protective layers Saves lives from harmful cosmic radiation Controls the climate and weather variation Burns meteorites before they become curse So the Earth doesn’t turn into another Mars. Mountain peaks pierce invisible atmosphere Air pressure decreases up the gradient there Breathlessness sets in with oxygen depletion Climber’s heart struggles albeit in jubilation Clouds spiral in cyclonic low-pressure trough Pour as rain and snow swept by winds rough. Let the depressed life climb the mountain high Rise over dreary atmosphere to touch the sky Reach euphoria stratum where pressure is low Enliven weathered life leaving the agony below Ecstasy clouds will suffuse the mind at elevation Drizzle in your soul as the shower of exaltation.
