Very probably

this mountain has been here

for several million years

but today

I was stood beneath

& over time the weathering

growth of trees plants moss lichen

erosion by wind rain snow

millennia of storms

has combined worked to create

a pleasing perfection

which I wasn’t inclined to climb

make some facile attempt to conquer

I’d though I’d leave that

to some other fool with deep lungs

as this view had taken mine

away
