climbing to view

(all photos taken by my brother Nathan)
many times in Paris
once in Switzerland
i found myself
stepping
turning
panting
wondering
 just what will i see?                                                                                              top of arc de triomphe


well worn stone steps
holding many travelers
pilgrims really
and clergy
a bird's eye view                                                                                                           top of sacre coeur
long before the Wright brothers
as man yearns                                                                                                            top of grossmunster
climbs
to see
and feel closer
