Poem: "The Sights Reserved"

This is the freebie poem from today's Poetry Fishbowl, inspired by a photo prompt from moosl. I have not climbed such high mountains, but I have seen the sun rise from the top of Harney Peak and yes, Nature does sometimes save a special palette for a special perspective.

The Sights Reserved

Some sights the Earth reserves,
like a woman waiting for her favorite lover.
Some discoveries are only given
to those who have proven themselves worthy.
Some things you will never see
from safe ground or a plane’s window,
but go
on your own two feet, climb
the knife-bright back of the mountain
and you will find
colors that never touched artist’s canvas –
the gold-dusted peach of alpine sunrise
the studded bronze of the stones
and the lapis shadows softly filling your footprints
all the way home.
