Patagonia Free Fall

And so I went for a walk
that I was told would go
somewhere.

I walked deeper with this faith in strangers
that sometimes I decide to trust in.

Finally there it was at the very end—
a large cliff rising tall above clear blue water.

A 6pm glow with the golden hour approaching,

and the climbers,
climbing free, falling freely
into the open water
below.
