28 to Create, Day 16 – While Everyone Sleeps
While everyone sleeps
dusk crawls up the slope
eating grass and nibbling at the scrubs.
The peak looks bold
like a lake at the foot of the mountain
where no one stops
before attacking the height.
Where the most exhausted walkers
will take off dusty heavy shoes
and dip their swollen dirty feet
in the crystal water
disillusioning every hungry soul.
