Switzerland 2022

29 peaks…

Stood together
and vastly apart.
Many held thousands upon thousands
of feet of snowpack.
From a distance beyond measure,
the rushing of a waterfall
followed by another
found a way into a river
moving with speeds almost as great as sound.
Many peaks revealed their sharp,
distinct natures.
EVERY one of the mountains held
the sun, the moon, and stars.  They
held the clouds sometimes ‘lifting’
their inner cages that set free
the birds filling the skies with
hovering angels.

29 Peaks
each climbing above 4,000 meters.
They have NO fitted gear to rise.
So, tell me…
WHO formed You?
Wait right there…Please!
I know there are scientific
meanings and theories revealing
the coming together of endless
I listen and have limited sense of
knowing all these recordings, facts, data
and measured time

I know there are doorways of theological
truths, mystical revelations, transformational
Scrolls have been written
hid-den in caves…
dates, times written on page after page
after page
a vast array of testaments


the 29 Peaks stand
before ‘time.’
THEY are the Gospels that need no
Standing, rising they move.  Oh, they MOVE.
They are NOT changed by explanations.
THEY need NO acceptance, fanfare
or awards for being.
THEY do NOT speak in words
instructing ‘anyone’ or ‘anything’
on how you, too, can arrive.
THEY ask NO fees
to support their daily
So, WHO formed YOU?

If you gave the secret out,
I’m already beginning to hear
the vast array of diverse opinions.

Standing within THIS community
of 29 peaks,
a silence speaks—
a HARMONY exists
before existence even began.

WHO formed YOU?
Who am I?
It is a distance to reach the
vertical climb of over 4,000 meters.

Sharing the same ‘ground’
…Thank you, Wondrous Earth.
I’m going to keep walking.

    These photos are magnificent, Sandy! Yours, correct? God’s creation, in all its glory, defies explanation. We, too, defy explanation. For it is only through the benevolence of our Heavenly Father/Mother and the love freely given that lifts our existence into this world.

    This adventure seems unreal? The photos, simply stunning! I can smell the ozone at 4000 meters above. I can feel the rocks beneath my feet. The adventure is real! You continue to reveal the life and the truth of it all. Thank you dearly.
