I slept amongst the shade
Cast by the eucalyptus and caressed by the breeze;
Birds they sing to share their message.
Dreams come and go rapidly
Too fast to cast my judgment;
I latch on and then let it go.
Reluctantly I awaken at the foot of Huascaran
Smaller than when I began but prouder than when I came;
Body refreshed and mind reset I roll over for more.
