A View From Up High

If I were not afraid of heights

I’d sample more of the world’s delights

And see much more from places high

The hills and valleys, sun and sky.


I look up from a place below

Where sunlight paints the world aglow

If I were brave enough to be

Atop a mountain, hill, or tree

Oh, how wondrous that would be

As from my vantage point, I’d see

More of this earth God gave to me!


Alas, I sit now, here with thee

And dream of being a lot more…



I am not a poet, but I decided to play around with a few words. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you for reading!

  1. Ohhh I am so afraid of heights. Years ago I had a panic attack on the bridge where I live. I travel that bridge a lot and out of the blue I had an attack. I also do not like to fly, and it’s sad because my husband wants to travel. I would rather drive to see the sites and views. Nice post. God Bless

    1. Same here with all the above, my issues with flying stem from a plane mishap in 2011, now I have to give myself “the talk” to fly.
