Trying 
Desperately
To reach the unconquerable world
Of the metaphysical.
I stand
                                                                            Alone
On a deserted plain
                                                 Heavens
                                        the
                           into
                    up
Gazing
Scanning
                    the
                           Earth
                                      below.
Basking in the heights
I have reached.

This plateau
Symbolizes
The aspiration
The achievement
The reward
Reaching new heights
Realizing new dreams
Fulfilling long-held desires.
Putting pen to paper
Writing words without meaning
Calling it poetry.

The impenetrable world
Of the metaphysical
Has eluded yet
Another poet's pen. 

Alvorine, 1995
