My Monadnock


Monday, December 03, 2012


I
climb
to my place
of strength and solitude
With each summit-discovering
vistas of other great monadnocks*-
The solitary distant mountains who create
in me a desire to hike both onward and upward-
discovering newness and boldness in the mountain and in myself.

*monadnock is a geological term that refers to a mountain that is alone and not part of a range.
Mt. Monadnock is the most hiked mountain in North America, located in Jaffrey, NH.
