The Difference



Friends, from a sleepless night, a poetic offering for you. From a dream I had while awake…which was real -but felt like a dream. Follow?  Well…let’s see!

I pray it blesses you, somehow.


The Difference


The sky was an ocean,

the mountains were sea

all we witnessed that day

hinted at eternity


further North we travelled,

and closer we came

to beauty unraveled

our journey’s true aim


You saw an endless road,

the wrong direction,

a horse in a field,


yet still, sky above

blue and cloudless


But that day in Maine,

you drove me to the edge

of the universe, and at the end

of the road I peered

straight into the eyes

of Heaven.
