Horizon - Poem by Ajit Das

When the sky is azure blue,
the horizon draws a line
between heaven and earth.

On a misty day it gets blurred,
closing the distance, limiting
your vision: seen and unseen.

When clouds gather, erasing
the skyline, darkness descends,
enveloping the surroundings.

And, then, clouds disappear,
the dark lifts, mist clears,
the view is sunlit, unimpeded.

The curve of earth beckons.
You try to outstrip; it recedes,
alluring yet with new horizons.

    A stunning write..Horizon is compared to our own vision and perception.Cloudy thoughts can limit our vision and blurr the skyline.When cloud clears, it is a new horizon.

    Verily, the day and night bring about new horizons
    in our life.

    Just as the horizon is ever changing and unattainable so seems the message of so much in life. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful and lovely poem, reminding Lord Byron's She Walk, s in beauty, .Enjoyed the poem very much. In my opinion skyline and mirage have one unique similarity. You can not catch either of them by traversing any length of distance.
    Enjoyed the theme and the poem. Thanks for sharing.10++
