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.
