Low In The Valley

Low in the Valley

Low in the valley,
when higher up would be
picturing the view
enjoying the stillness

But upon slipping
Instead of higher up
Found myself in the valley
In the midst of a fog

Not a fog dense or great
nor in the base of the valley
nor lamenting the situation
Just slipped upon the path

Sitting and reflecting
Bewildered and surprised
Glancing up and glancing down
The fog settling on my heart

Standing and deliberating
Seeing the time has passed
The opportunity to disturb the universe gone
And now not ready to ascend.

Dust off my pants
Look around, and with a sigh
Travel back down to the valley
To ascend again some day.
