The Other Side of The Hill
“The other side of the hill is no time to tarry.”
The time has arrived. The other side
of the hill is in sight, a downhill
ride you no longer can resist.
Caution may not be your friend,
instead she could be the one
you want to abandon most-
with modest glee. The roller coaster
you have ridden thus far has brought
you here, to the precipice of what comes next.
How can you not feel your own breath
coursing through each scintilla of second?
This is the thrill come home to roost.
Ride that blueberry slope like a slip
side. Let your ancestors know you
are coming home. It may be twenty,
thirty or more years before you reach
the bottom. Who cares? There is so much
to enjoy, so do it all, make your stands
while they yet can be erected, and let your
raised voice reverberate upon all the other
side of so many hills. There are many there
who are waiting for you, to show the way-
to the other side of the hill.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
