The Summit - Poem by Elias Foukis

In the frozen wastes of Antarctica
the only thing lacking
was the Sun...
which was found in excess
only in the Sahara Desert.


In the heat and aridity of the Sahara
the only thing lacking was...
an Oasis
which was found in excess
only in the Amazon rain-forests.



Immersed in the Amazon Oasis
the only thing lacking
was the Summit...
which was found in excess
only in the Himalayan Mountains.



Now that I've reached the highest summit
in the Himalayas
I see that you can't dream of
anything higher than this...



On the Summit
the security and serenity
are so soothing and undisturbed
that I could literally
die of Loneliness...



So for that reason..
since I want to live
the only solution is descent..
