Untitled haiku

[24 May 2019]

I set my gaze towards
The mountain peak but found my
Feet still at the door.

      Isn’t it quite human? 🙂

          Isn’t it, though?

            This reminds me of the classic Christmas story “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer” where they are singing “Put one foot in front of the other-and soon you’ll be walking out the door…” 🙂

    And there my feet will stay, as I’ve no urge to climb a mountain! Enjoyed this one, thanks Nathan, and thanks for taking part in Click & Run.

      Haha I’ve not done it for quite some time and I am okay with that! Thanks for stopping by as always, Stevie 🙂

    I encounter this apparition all the time. I tend to be grandiose, so I can relate to this totally. Nice haiku.
