those who travel by land

There’s a band of thin light

at the curve of the world

reaching into the forest,

flowing over the sage

rising with the still blue morning,

bringing the day’s

portion of earthly grace.

You may

lie here

for only a moment,

rest only as long,

to be living again.

You can

get there

only by running,

you may only arrive

empty handed.
