Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Acclimatization Footsteps Traverse Roof Of World


one day I also long
to embrace freedom
movement motion

get out of jail free
inherent in mobile phones
sucking in thoughts

contacts friendships
diverse on the run
but presently mountains

of thoughts loom
before me I am
but in the foothills

hours days weeks
of hard steady climb
stretch out before me

in acclimatization
before my footsteps
traverse the roof

of the world
attempt summits
of highest peaks

only then can I descend
to your mountain valleys
bars cafes wine dine in

old friendships when
tribute is paid when
the long trek is done
