L’appel du Vide
This is one of the tallest peaks in the entire valley. It’s called dive rock.
Fog people have spoken of it for eras and eons before, and it is rare.
This summit is known as legend, but it exists everywhere at once.
It has this so gravitating name, that begs those so enraptured
To see what lies so over the side of those deepest abysses.
To understand and give into the temptation for knowledge.
To meet the view with full acceptance for curiosity.
Maybe all the legends tell true of a grand beyond.
Maybe all civilization is completely ignorant.
Maybe the native’s warnings did ring true.
Something about jumping into that vista
Seems so very heavenly at the moment.
Seeing the forested valley as if it
Was nothing in the palm of a hand
Up above it all, like something
All powerful and all knowing.
Looking on at an odd place.
I can see the cliff rocks
At a deep bottom, under
A light fog from my
Highest peak view.
Above any edge,
Come and live
And see me.
