January 20, 2009

Shield your eyes,
For the view from the mountaintop
Is both blinding and terrifying.
We're too close to the sun,
And too far from familiar earth.
Up here it seems we could fly,
Just lean forward and and let the
Rare air hold us aloft,
Straining our eyes to look
Over the far, hazy, hopeful horizon.
