Are you the road
Stretching out ahead
But also solid underfoot
At once here and not here
Over there
Back there
Both the behind and the before
A ribbon a line a thread, twine
Between your past and your future
Like a tightrope

Are you the sky
Everywhere at once
The very air you breathe
When it changes we call it a mood
As though the weather were a person
That we can cajole back
To sunny optimism

Or are you the horizon
That can never quite
Be reached

NaPoWriMo, another first day poem
inspired by a photo seen on Twitter
