Edge of the land

I’m not an adventurer, I am an explorer of the smallest kind, 

walking up hillsides to capture views of life below, 

footing coastal paths to be at the edge of everything,

like being on the outside of a giant water bubble,

the holding on to a membrane so fragile, it has 

the pop factor, gulp of unpolluted air, the wonder of

the tiniest of life getting on with itself,

the amazement of beauty in raw terms, 

then there are the clouds, nimbus excetera.
