El Yunque Peak

July 28, 2013 § Leave a comment

The wind is whipping sky-water parallel to the earth, if you can call it that. More of a slippery pinnacle, water on moss on rock, a chiseled crest, the highest point in Sierra de Luquillo. I can hear the whistling of the wind through the jungle, the wet crash of rain on my face and into my eardrums, and over it, the rumbling sound of my own voice yelling,

“THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO LOOK DEATH RIGHT IN THE EYEBALLS AND POKE HIM IN THE FOREHEAD … NOT TODAY DEATH! NOT TODAY!”

Well, that and the voice of my friend telling me to get down from there.
