What If Horizons Were Rainbows

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #309 - Horizons

"It’s been an interesting year, to say the least. 2020 has been a beast I hope to not encounter again (but I’m not holding my breath). So we take the opportunity to look toward the horizon. We’re not sure what awaits us in the distance. But we may have an idea what we’d LIKE to be there.

So we ask you to write a “horizon” poem. It can be whatever you envision a horizon to be. The choice is surely yours."

Horizon is a far away word,
barely seen between sea and sky.
It is not tangible, cannot be heard.
Horizon is a far away word.
We can imagine a multi-colored bird,
and watch it rainbow out all lies.
Horizon is a far away word,
barely seen between sea and sky.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
