Bare Bones

Why not?

Words seemingly dealt in haste,
yet expressed with fervor, consideration,
excitement: tempered by time.

Halfway up the mountain was I
when I suddenly realized
not only was the air paper-thin,
& the view, the endless sky, laced in a gauze of clouds unreal, bleeding sun

Something so imponderable, I could not have envisioned the whole picture;
Finally! The risk was worth the reward.
