Too Much Here For One To See
I look to the sky and the blazing sun Feeling like I’ve arrived, the only one This place before me feels like home? Should I never leave here, no longer roam? God must have painted here, these very tones Man has not touched this place nary a stone Sitting, I gaze upon this beautiful place Content, I wish to stay, leave the race How is it that a site can affect me so? I couldn’t retreat now if I wanted to go I wonder aloud, here am I intended to be? Perfect; sky, water, rock, quiet and me? Feeling privileged as if near the Creator My senses are whet like never before There’s an urgency I feel but it’s odd Like I can wait here looking, to see God Wait I do, frozen really on this grassy lea In time, I notice all, He is revealed to me With sweeping glance again and again I see there’s more than when I began How could this be here, in its entirety? Bigger, better, more efficient than any city Hours seem to cram themselves into seconds Astutely aware I long for time at this expanse I came in by myself but do not feel alone Arising, I wish to visit with each stone All at once I wish to share this place While wanting here, to witness just my face I work to move among the vast scenery Noting that maybe mans not meant entry Time nor distance measure my rate Only light or the lack of it track my fate Once upon the floor of this earthly dimple Closer inspect confirms my race, so simple The beauty is all at once overwhelming But still, nothing I’ve known more calming Wandering among the divine, peace is mine Hoping this space is the same for all time The symmetry of societal plans exists away, Away from this pastoral valley further today Time is still, so am I, as it should be For there’s too much here for one to see Only the land prevents me from deliberating Tranquil, I visit, the sound of my heart pulsating Looking up I see water falling freely down I feel no sound; don’t know where I’m bound The flow disappears on the distant horizon I move to the spot I keep my eyes on Asking I wonder what I came here to see It seems in this freedom I am finding me The air is cooler the water again I spy Calm at the base after the traverse so high This cool spot wasn’t visible a while back How long I enjoy it, I’ve simply lost track Were there limits on the time I should spend? It’s been night once since and I see no end Then I wonder what pieces of this site Will witness the sun setting tonight I can’t guess the distance, or the time Any checks vanish amid this nature sublime Only the natural around including all sound This freedom is true, the definition I’ve found Waves of orange and red light another day’s end In awe, man’s place I figure as God would intend I close my eyes this time in hopes of a dream Recounting this heavenly place aside a stream This man, in awesome wonder, stops by free Wishing all could encounter such majesty
