Climbing A Mountain
Sweetened memories are coagulating and gesturing to be
by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
remembered in these lines right now this moment.
Selecting those that are jumping for joy, seeing self
in childhood, having the time of my life.
Togetherness with family in depths of intellect,
becoming a part of this poem right now.
Walking up mountainous terrain, watching sights get
smaller down below us.
Youngest sister getting stuck on the side of the
mountain we were climbing, I had to rescue her.
All memories are treasured, this one in her tears,
because she was so scared by herself up so high.
