While I wade through the shallows...

While I wade through the shallows
like those on the verge of dried up river beds
like those that form after a summer rain
and reflect in pride..

You seem to leap over the mountains
Jump through the cascades
Ski the powdered ice in vertical dimension

Among us
Among you and me
all comparisions are insignificant
like a sapling to a Red wood
and an anzenu to a veteran
and what is given to what is possible
and what is possible to what that can be only dreamed of

Like a spirit that is incessant
You stand tall
Albeit in mortal disguise
