Treasure Island

Limitless Horizon


Limitless is the horizon.
always there,
right in front of me:
Oh! ! ! ! ! ! ! How I long to see?
What's beyond that edge,
that precipice
in space and time.

No matter how I quest,
I cannot get to where
the other side is clear
just that I know
it's near.

And yet, it's not time
for I have much to rhyme
and do and say and be
here in this place,
my earth,
until I grow my wings.

To season my fireside with personal talk.--

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
