Callused fingers
Explore, test, commit
Clutching at the grainy bark
Thrusting toes find purchase in the crust
Muscles straining
Lift, contort, flex
Pushing upward into the verdant canopy

Each thrust awarding surprising new vistas
Previously hidden and smudged behind undergrowth
Gloriously unbound

Dusty bits of crumbling life
Inadvertently raining down
Bearing witness to the undertaking
Adding to the clutter of that which is earthbound
Evidence of effort
And a shifted paradigm
To those clever enough to glance up
Though few are
