Broad Horizon

Broad Horizon


Stillness of snow covered prairie

seeps into weary bones

solitude's silence once again

draws out cluttered thoughts


Western Nebraska's broad horizons

swallow up the day's worries

burden laid upon yoke

refreshing inner calm


Fingers of snow drifts iced over

protrudes along property line

chaos of wind driven fury resisted

lover's warmth melts the sting


Intimacy's embrace in oneness

under brisk open sky

restores sense of oneness

emptiness absorbs all dissonance


Renews what's been taken

refills what's been freely given

peace washes fluidly beneath

broad horizon's invitation


Leaving soft pastel colors

brushed upon once heavy memories

transforming the meaning

of what has been
