summit

intimidating serrated crest
emulates Ansel's view
challenges down-clad one
to climb her stretch-marked belly

a gaze upward
at silver glazed wall
the glacial rock face
mirrors reflection

filigree flakes
dissolve on the tongue
boot prints sink
crackle the earth

snow-white evergreens
sovereigns at treeline
bark shushing commands
silencing animals

knurled branches
dangle icicle prisms
sun-spotted glister
blinds vision of peril

jagged shards cleave
ragged gashes rake skin
rocks amass between boulders
force grueling detours

precarious pitons
frostbitten feet
belay icy sheer
as senseless hands fail

halo-lit cloud's
enveloping haze
shadows fickle crevasses
that repel gaffs

clawed to the summit
stand exhausted
raise stiffened arms
roar echo of triumph
