A secluded sanctuary, tucked away in an
obscure corner of middle earthSurrounded by a bouquet of flora and
menacing bovines

Soft candy floss clouds waltz their way
over the celestial ballroom
Trees shake and shudder in the
relentless mountain breeze

Swelling, itching lumps to reminisce
your bush adventures
Laden down with a heavy pack
I continue my tedious ascent

My heart a flutter at the awe
and beauty of nature
As I strive to conquer the saddle.
