Unseen Horizon

~~~~~ My eyes shout beware. No one hears.Their hearts and minds set on findingUnknown, unnamed treasure they’veBeen assured they’ll discover in time. Beware, you’re told, you must take itFrom those who claim what is yours.Rich will tell you to fear your friends,Tthe strangers they turn you against. Weep your tears, too salty to nourish.The love […]


~~~~~ Changes upon changes upon changes, From our birth until our final cerement. Myriad the changes sought and life-sent. In love and enmity, we may find satiety, Follow harmony and discord past variety. No matter the songs, notes or words cast, These and all must come to an end at last. Worry not of future […]
