Photo by Maria Orlova on

Appleby – in – Westmoreland, Lake district

Hard hat and rigging applied

i found myself scaling down the side

of a very rocky hillside

My own personal Everest

quite a way from the top of the hill

down to the bottom

I felt reasonably safe

secure in the ropes and clips

i was attached to

Half way – i felt able

to take a shortish reststop

viewing left and right

Feet feeling for stops

to land on before taking

another descent

Terrafirma ? Achievement

as i looked where i had been

and all by myself
