Mt. Everest

Vintage Words


The earth moved and voices 

were silenced. The world  
was dark and lonely as bones

broke and breath ended. Last

hopes failed, last prayers

were made before blood

began to stain white ice.

What the Sherpa risked

is what the climbers risked

without hearing the sound

of Nepal screams. The daring

challenge is there, pressed

beneath the shak Co ing earth.






Author's Notes/Comments: 

4000 dead and counting following the earthquake in Nepal.

 They say the God's have

 They say the God's have their reasons but whatever they are .They can't be sane !

Every story-teller bends the myth to his own purpose. that's why a Hero has a thousand faces

Space Adjustment

If you take enough mineral and liquid and gas out of Earth, eventually Earth rebels. Tectonic plates shift and volcanoes grow in all sorts of unlikely places. Hawaiians are thinking mainland - Earth yawns and the God's look on bored. Baltimore, Nepal, Everest - bad luck comes in 3s.
Good to hear from you always Dan-59. U made my day. ~slc
