Horizon Lines Shift

The horizon has often been a focal point in both my writing and my photography, which is funny as the horizon is pointless. Yet there is just something awe inspiring about the way it wraps around our world. The first line of this poem represents a change as a shifting horizon usually means a change in perspective. Yet the next line shows that this change is not a good one as the subject of the poem appears to be in distress. The final line is used to demonstrate two things. First, it shows the finality of death, like the horizon which is unending. Secondly, it uses the word embrace to show that the subject has accepted their fate.

Thank you again to Prolific Press for all your continued support and thank you to those who inspire me to keep on writing.
