A Year of Poems – Day 221

Matchless heights take the breath away
The blowing wind of speed shuts the mouth
Simple metrics that teach the etiquette of awe
Taught by the wind on cliff or mountain
In the simple classroom of height and depth
So that the student may practice awe
In the everyday encounters with both friends and God.
