‘Climbing the World’s Peak’ by Yuxing Xia The Society May 30, 2015 Beauty, Poetry 2 Comments Submerged in blinding red and blue at dawn, I climb the barren fields to find between the gentle tides of crying clouds, where spawn the highest peak of world in mist unseen. I leap across the steps where fallen sweat will glide and fill the throat of void abyss. By luck, I touch the top where rock had met the sky, a well of concrete dreams. I reach only to fall straight down to where I first begun. Featured Image: Photograph of Mt. Everest.
