I see you there,
on the other side
of that vast stretch of golden glory.
I sense you across the living sea of wildflowers,
making their long journey across the wilderness
toward you; the land barren no longer
because of their presence. The wilderness
has now been transformed to a field
of light. Is there anything
I want as much
as to chase this light? I feel
that is a call
that is a plea
that is a demand on my soul
to venture in. But what if
you are only
the cloud on the horizon? What if
the joy is in pursuit and not arrival? What if
there is no arrival
and life everlasting is a circle
‘round and around
on an endless quest for home?
