Visit to a magnificent place, 50% discount

A poem about someone’s visit to a magnificent place:
Poetic Asides – Visitor’s Poem and Being Poetry – Describe a magnificent place, then count the words and reduce them by 50%

[Notes: 1. It is a Sijo. 2. The second variant is reduced by 50%]

Below the azure sky rises a blinding rocky peak,
Breath-taking with its whiteness, sublimely crushing my high pride.
I never stop coming to watch and imbibe its grandeur. 

Below azure sky – rocky peak
breath-taking, whiteness, crushing pride
I stop, watch – grandeur.

It’s wonderful… Sijo

This week the prompt of 3WW is deviant, minuscule, trivial; I answer with a Sijo (traditional Korean unrhymed 3-line poem)

There is unused abundance of deviant ideas
However, they are all tremendously minuscule in nature.
It’s wonderful how trivial objections hinder us.

And a cute flowery image, having nothing to do with the poem 🙂
