High Grounding

High Ground, Pacific Coast Highway, Northern California, United States of America
I climb up
Out of the fog
I see forever
But there is nothing to see
Only the fog
And the road which brought me here

Still, there is the blue sky
And the sun
I bask in its warmth
Smell the grass
Breathe the fragrant air

I remind myself
Fog is ephemeral
And there is always this high ground
Above the fog
Even if I can only reach it
By closing my eyes
And remembering this moment

High Ground
Pacific Coast Highway
Near Point Reyes National Seashore
California, United States of America
