Ski Poem about Freedom | Spiritual Mountain Ode to the Downhill Slalom

Updated on March 24, 2012

Kissing the face of the Tall Mountain Groom

A Skiers Heavenly Flight; facing the ups and downs of a holy mountain experience and a physical relationship with the creator of all things



Breathe fragrant crisp of new fallen snow

Quickening the heart of a downhill slalom.

Scrunching footsteps of fresh powder

Delights the ears so anticipating the slope.


Bundled bibs fastened, gloves warmly worn

Equip for challenges of expert terrain.

Skis fully waxed and edges clean-shaven led

To kiss the face of the holy mountain groom.


Trail dancing atop the tall mountain trails,

Ascending and descending as a cherub

Gliding adrift on the wings of winds.

In covenant slalom, they become one.


Cleansed, washed white as consecrate snow

Though once a child repeatedly fallen,

Redeemed and sanctified through grace

Before the throne on the holy mountain.


Splendid heights of heavenly lofting

Liberate the soul from bondage ‘neath.

Freedom prevails, all striving cease,

Embracing eternal covenant peace.


Slalom, Shalom
