I start with one foot, keeping my eyes away from the punishing sun
and the towering mountain.
I began scaling, feeling the burning of my muscles for every movement.
Yet I felt nothing and heard nothing from the shouting below me.
My ears kept attuned to the breeze; My constricted pupils keeping contact with
my calloused hands.
I was absorbed in the process of self-enlightenment.
I reached the top.
The clouds covered the landscape and all that was too be seen was the darkened
I sat on a throne of rock and stone. I am now enlightened.
But I see no one nor hear anyone when looking down.
The clouds are impenetrable.
I am enlightened and alone.
