~ The Horizon ~

let me turn these hands back
just an hour or two
before the storm

when the clouds were barely visible

upon the horizon

let me erase this angry sky
color it blue
watch the sunset with you

the red, orange and golden hues

upon the horizon

Hi Alison- it's terrible really - everything than any of us can think of saying is a waste of ink because Old Bill has said it already!


"One day too late, I fear me, noble lord,
Hath clouded all thy happy days on earth:
O, call back yesterday, bid time return,"


Richard II

Ron, I should hang your poem on my bathroom mirror to avoid my next foot in mouth situation.  This is a remarkable poem and well deserving of the CP award.  Congratulations !  I look forward to reading more of your poetry.

Excellent exceptional piece all around! I feel regret in these line for an angry outburst and longing for the relationship to be as peaceful as it was prior to the argument. Love this poem Ron!

Congratulations!!  The horizon holds such mystery...sometimes great promise...sometimes sorrow and me this reads like a heart-felt apology..and if have a wonderful poetic way of mending fences and solving problems...there is power in these few words.
