An Elevated View

Crossing the wide span

Of a tall river bridge

I want to freeze the moment

As I gaze out across

the endless wide water.

It always makes me ecstatic

Uplifting me to some

Other plane of existence

As if I were flying high above

All troubles and strife.

I feel every cell

In my body sing

With bliss

And sitting in my little

Loft back home

Again, from a height,


The water below

I am transported.

The media

The news

The anger

The barking heads

Float away

As a higher perspective

Takes hold.

A knowing of a

Larger vantage point

Of this tiny moment

In history

And the infinite

Possibilities within it
