Today's Horizon

Every day I must see
how the horizon
plays with the land —
what colors combine
at that time of day,
what mists cover,
what clouds evoke,
what rains wash away.

What new thoughts
mingle with the wind,
what energy is shared
that takes me
out of my smallness,
my cares.

I am expanded
into the loftiness
of godliness,
of evolution,
the changing world,
man’s grip and loss,
the warming of the seas,

And through it all,
I trust the rhythm
of everyday life,
its cycles,
that the sun still comes on time,
and the moon still visits,
that waves break and rivers flow, 
and that the horizon
will always be there
to play with the land.
