Like a construction site –
life stretches out before us,
so many unknowns ahead.
We search the horizon
for assurances that the road
is worthy, the destination in view.
In truth, no matter our choices
it is peace we seek, a contentment
not found beyond, but within.
(For Nancy Merrill’s Photo of the Week Challenge: on the horizon. Searching for photos for this entry, I have noted that my horizons are often off-kilter, something I must pay more attention to.)
