Vantage Point

Vantage Point
vantage point (noun): a position that affords a broad overall view or perspective, as of a place or situation
American Heritage Dictionary


At first it felt frivolous
to pull onto a dirt road
while cars raced on the highway
in a hurry to do important things,
felt foolish to stand there
watching that moment
when the day finally sits back
exhaling an orange sigh,
felt silly to gasp
when orange breath
became pink fingers
stroking silhouettes of mountains.
And then it became obvious
it would have been
to be doing anything else.
