Ever Deeper

                      The Far Horizon ~ Philip Brent Harris

What do we tell ourselves
Late at night,
Moments from sleep?
What do we hope for
At first light?

Sun’s return
Births our new day.
Do we live
Our days asleep,
Our nights awake?

I struggle to answer
Huddled before, around
Flickering blue fires,
Our idols.

We pray they guard us
As they prey upon us.
We skate life’s surface,
No tracks, no figures,
Left behind.

Wind-blown snow
Scours any traces.
Thin-ice warnings
We follow
Or ignore,

By chance or choice.
Plunge into hidden depths,
In darkness,
Cold, frightened,

We sink and drown
Or struggle deeper,
Ever deeper;
Until we find
The source of all light.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
