Long Horizon

There is a long horizon

Under the waxing moon

Pale rising

Over the city beneath me

Where

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
