I pause for breath

above the clouds

where the air is thin

and the wind a solitary sound

I chase the altitude

tired and thrilled

the rush of strength

flowing through my body

I pause for breath

a respite on a cliff side

giving myself a single moment

before action resumes

and the climb restarts

I push to my maximum

to find that limit – Caroline A. Slee
