April 15th – Uphill Climb

Haiku / Triplet


Overwhelming state

Stop to contemplate your fate

Breathe. Then keep going.


Life throws you a twist

Easy path hard to resist

Trust in the knowing.


Patience. Take your time

It’s not always uphill climb

Hills shrink. Keep growing.

DAY 15- UPHILL CLIMB

Spring buds peek out, seek

Warmth. Roots pulse, suckle earth’s milk.

Sated tendrils climb.

Uphill Climb


Mr. Green Boots left home in ‘96

He packed his boots of green

To challenge the mighty Everest

The deadliest there’s ever been


The struggle is real

On that Nepal uphill climb

Adventure and fame is the deal

If the mountain don’t claim your life


At eighty-five hundred meters, he made it near the top

Curling up into a cave

This is where his story stops

Nothing could keep the climber safe


The unknown climber lies there to this day

So if you’re ever searching the peak

When you’re feeling brave

Ol’ Green Boots may guide you to what you seek.
