Long Horizon

There is a long horizon

Under the waxing moon

Pale rising

Over the city beneath me


Amber lit avenues

Gridscape through the trees

Ten thousand points of light

Prick the darkening gloom

While I search that long horizon

For a straight line

To you

  1. David–another gorgeous poem.

  2. Thanks. I have a beautiful hilltop view of the city a few minutes walk away, and when the lights come on at dusk it’s inspiring. And so of course is imagining what’s over the horizon, and trying to point myself in a particular direction.

    I like this one very much David Trudel, especially “Amber lit avenues gridscape through the trees.” #WoW
