Looking down to avoid free-falling from atop the mountainside,
I paid no attention to the surrounding beauty as my anxiety grew.
The fact is I was foremost so concerned about a possible disaster
That I forgot to look up and enjoy the the spectacular view.
I stalked the paths as if I were searching for prey for supper,
And I nearly missed the Great Designer’s wondrous creation.
So, I stopped, looked upward, and my breath caught in my throat,
As I gleaned the wonders before me in ecstasy and grateful adoration.
