God's Pulpit

Rising light echoes off
white, rocky majesty into
the hearts of the men.
The beauty of the moment effaces
the memory of the burning
struggle that lies deep
within their skin.
Not one has the brilliance to put into
words the thoughts that keep
them hiking up the glacial stairs to
their heaven.
They pause,
but for a moment,
then continue to slog
upward, striving for
God's Pulpit.
