Here I am, lying under the fan

Spreading my arms and legs out wide

Trying to dry up beads of sweat

Incredible heat creeping up to my side.

My eyelids droop to a low

Letting in images of past ventures

Tucked away deep in a mountain’s heart

Amidst frozen trees and eternal winters.

I shudder as cold pierces my skin

Surrounded by damp tent canvas

Huddling inside my warm sleeping bag

And four layers of fur stuffed mush.

Hands, toes, cheeks, all covered

Skin quivering to the last uncovered inch

Laying like a shelled up tortoise

Hesitant to bare its limbs a hint.

Suddenly my furry layers are gone

I draw my hands and legs together

Bare skin, nothing to block the cold

Stripped of trekking gear, in the hot weather.
