Climber seeks place in the universe.

~Sonnet of the Mountain Climber~ 

What shall I do now? 

Follow the sun from its rising 

into the valley far below 

or shall I climb higher 

to better see 

how far darkness goes 

and how high these rocks have come 

from vanished seas? 

I come to taste the salt 

from ancient floors 

and read your shells of silence. 

Up here I see so far, 

yet never far enough to tell 

from which star hung Heaven.
