Overlook

from 2019

I climbed up a mountain to see the leaves.
It was a gradual incline over sixty minutes,
I don't know how high I got,
But the view took me to another planet.
Wide open land between mountains,
Empty roads with no end in sight.
I was in awe of this view,
I had stepped off earth, 
Into someplace quiet.
The quiet rings loud in my ears.
No one talks, a subtle breeze 
Blows through the colored leaves on fire.
This is what it's like to stop my thoughts.
I'm lost in the quiet depths of the universe.
A life on mars, it's all a lie.
