Horizons …

Clouds are passing overhead

on their silent journey;

sailing to the far horizon

upon a disc of blue.

Clouds form shadows on the sea

like frowns upon a face

that clear to leave a subtle lightness

lingering in their place.

My mind sees no horizon;

no limits to the view –

my thoughts are passing with the clouds

beyond the distant sea,

beyond the curvature of earth they float

in silence inwardly … .

    Yes, this is a limitless view. Both in words and image.

    Thank you again, Shermeen …. it was a remarkably still sea that day … more like a deep blue pool ..
