A new beginning, fresh, pure so close and yet very far. The striving to attain what the mountain represents is the journey we should take. The attainment of the goal is immaterial. It is in the attempt that we gain what we seek...... thank you!

This one made me catch my breath with the holy grail haiku AHA in the third line. Superb. This one is going in my special handwritten notebook I've been keeping for 10 years of my favorite works ever by other writers... I don't know, it just struck a chord with me.
