Cliff Hanger

A mountainside pond

reflects the stars

a world above

the crashing surf.

A bird’s eye view

spans the distance.

The nest, a found

home in the wind.

The song of the fox,

the howl of tumbling

stones, an abandoned trail

yearns for boots.

The earth holds a place

for our feet. Our soul

footing for wonder.
