From a Hilltop (Poetic thought by George-B)

From a Hilltop (Poetic thought by George-B)

From this height I can see the cities bellow,
partially obscured By a fine curtain of tasteless,
yellow-brownish smoke…
I’m immersed in it as well,
but a false sense of security overrides the sad fact
Otherwise, oh, what a splendid sight:There is Whittier,
and further down South Pomona, El Monte, Downey;

Towards the ocean Downtown LA, Hollywood and Santa Monica:
Over there, an airplane seems to shoulder its way toward an airport
And an helicopter, turns in mile-large circles over 605 Fwy
while cars are shining in both directions,
tiny as ants, in ever towering traffic.
Here is Rose Hills, a place where silence is as habitual,
As the presence of birds in the skies.

A wondrous place, a hilltop, so many things to take in,
So many things to try not to forget,
so many trails, so little time to rest.

  1. It sounds like heaven looking down on an earth gone mad, thank you for sharing


    • Thank you INFP for your introspect in my vision from the hilltop: It is true: Just an hour away from it all, you become so detached from the world’s pulse, as if it all mixes in a completely new reality, that can be witnessed with a new appreciation!
      You watched the other video I posted (about the mountain bike trail at Turnbull Canyon.It starts at a water Tower. That tank is pretty closed (about 1/3 mile) from the Rattlesnake hilltop I was making my video from, I noticed that there is a bike in your photo, and I guess you enjoy doing some biking. Myself, I stay on the road and as much as possible away from streets, with or without bike lanes. I’m glad you appreciated this post, enough to give it such a accurate characterization. I hope to hear from you again!
