The Faraway Nearby

The farway nearby—
Can you see it?
Will it line itself
against the sky
or softly blend,
so you can barely make it out
at twilight.
You need to find it,
break free from what
hoods your vision,
makes you afraid to look,
so the image can glow its truth
before your eyes.

The faraway
can gild the moment
with your nearest dreams,
show what lasts,
what changes with the light,
what gives forever,
always waiting,
the power in the bud,
strength of limbs
that dance
so gracefully
in the wind.
