Far Horizons, Distant Dreams
Once the light shone so brightly
that time and distance stretched for ever,
the horizon at infinity strung with the pearls
of distant dreams.
And in between
just waiting to be grasped.
But then, as the light dimmed,
time and distance collapsed inwards
dragging the horizon closer
the spent remains
Only the dreams stretched further
beyond the horizon now
in the fading light.
Soon I’ll reach them
and perhaps discover myself
as part of someone else’s dream.
