Mountaintops

Mountaintops

What is it
about mountaintops?

Somebody
is always
going up them;

Abraham
and Moses,
David,
Elijah,
Ezekiel,
and Job,
Jesus
and his disciples,
and lamas
without number;

As enticing
as cheese
to a mouse,
as a flame
to a moth;

a divine something
summons them
to rise above
the everyday –

does it
have to be
literally?

Or does it
become
a “mountaintop experience”
simply because
they
are there?
