Horizon #writephoto…

*

Another milestone of time.

There is no youthful compassion

to commiserate with me.

There is no “Surprise!” party.

Just a cold, cold dawn…

and the inevitable tide

washing away a little bit more

of that ragged edifice.

At the start of this, our longest day.

We are on the way…

to greet a Saint.

  1. This is a beautiful poem, Stuart. Love that metaphor of the tide washing at the edifice. I could be wrong, but I sense something more literal going on too, which you are very cleverly hiding? And so, did you meet the Saint? Tell me to shove off if I’m being nosey! 😁
