Nature Is Breathtaking! Poetry to Celebrate Horizons

Horizons

There is something unquestionably strange
about the horizon,
always changing colors,
shifting it’s edges.
Someone is always
On the other side
Pulling it away.

If I am lucky the lily pads will
Welcome my soft steps,
The waters will yield to my weight,
The flowers will float aside
And I will grab your fingers
Before you vanish into the onward
Bending of night.

I wonder of a ball of fire…
An orb so great
No darkness could consume it,
Yet your belly swallows it whole every eve.

I am told I am a sun sign.
Would you welcome me as well?
