What courage to climb solo, especially in what I gather are your later years.
I have a picture of my son sitting on a similar cliff overlooking a canyon. It was alarming at first, but then I realized someone had to be there to take the picture.

Does your mother know you do that? That is a beautiful view behind you and it must be inspiring to conquer that mountain, but alone? Be careful. Your words capture well your enthusiasm. Enjoyed it.

You have certainly met the requirements of this demanding poetic style. I'm not sure if I would take on the challenge of a Constanza poem, but you have done a great job of achieving the desired result.
The theme of your poem is a challenge itself, climbing the rock, and constantly reevaluating the next step.
Thank you for sharing this well written piece.

How I remember my youth, such a partially scary place, with reflections of unknown places, every day was another mountain to climb another precipice to negotiate. Beautifully written my friend, A great Constanza, beautifully rhymed and smoothly written, well done, blessings Roy

A very well-written Condtanza about climbing the mountain solo bring memories of times a partner climbing with you. Although, not physically there anymore they will be in your mind forever.

There must be many who now find themselves climbing alone or with new companions. I enjoyed this, thanks. It's not a big deal but there needs to be a space between the two words 'Slowly,surely, '

Stay safe
Judy

Excellent metaphor and a fine poem to illustrate a rocky climb alone where on previously had a companion.

The wind can be very powerful when up that high.

I much enjoyed your contribution to the Potlatch Club, J.

Dear JLR, I certainly followed the sequence of thoughts and feelings you experienced on this climb and the final resolution to perhaps retire from this particular occupation particularly in view of your advancing years.
However the memories will be with you, always and supply many a lesson you can share for years to come.

Beautiful lines allowed this reader to understand better this Constanza poem. Your opening lines..."Caressing gently, my soul stirred,missing my hiking companion..." Intriguing.

A well done constanza poem which gives us the feeling of yearning for that very special hiking companion and close friend. I like how the ending takes us back from the memories to the importance of keeping safe in the present.
