Above, or Below?

Hey all! I’m back with my first couple of katuatas. Enjoy!

Atop tallest peak,
Admiring not skies above,
Absorbed in beauty below.

What humility!
Furious firestorms within
Honor humble flames without.

P.S: This has been penned for the What Do You See prompt, #WDYS , where poets were asked to write what they saw in the photo in question(given above). You can access the prompt at https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2022/01/17/what-do-you-see-117-january-17-2022/ .
