Near and Far

Near and Far


Journey inside filtered light

features change the hours pass,

Broken dreams the grist for new

adventures are seldom planned.

Solace found, a rocking chair

rather soar on bi-plane wings—

hunting dinosaurs, finding

things; once conceived, cunning made.

Pirate treasure, aqua seas,

Alexander’s sword and greaves,

Posey, gaudy parchments,

illuminated manuscripts.

Dance macabre carnival,

C-beams glitter, ships on fire,

Pilgrims journey finished fair,

denizen with snakes for hair.

What a real world is made of

in truth is experience–

well rendered and remembered,

going out and back again.
