Kilimanjaro. It may take a while! by Laura Barnes.
Laura Barnes climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world, for charity in September 2012 and is now resting. It may take a while!
Today, read about Laura Barnes’ fantastic experience on Yareah magazine.
Have a nice day!
At base camp
Barely a breath rasps past my lips
No more blabber infection
No swagger, no Gangnam Style
So I Soulja on, marching as to wed or war
A clerical crow caw caws
The wicked wind from the west whips me up
Into fifty shades of acute mountain misery.
Still, my heart beats.
Still, I take a tiny step
Asante sana, I am still alive.
Onward, like a wispy white feather
On the breath of God
Upward, breaking through the fluff and clouds
On to Uhuru Peak.
Every breath a summit.
