In Memory of those who stayed thee


For the love of the mountains

they go to places hard to reach

- to make dreams come true:


to be above the clouds,

to experience differently,

to see more.


For the love of the mountains

- they take risk.

Some of them reach

inhospitable summits.

Thirsty for adventures,

they are still trying.


Kazbek, Elbrus

are not just their plans

- they are the goals.


An order

of desires and certainty.

Despite everything, it’s worth it.

The language of time

will show who has arrived

and who has not managed.


For the love of the mountains

they return


or they stay forever.
