Horizon by KL Caley

For visually challenged writersthe image shows water with the occasional island just out of focus. The horizon is a golden colour.

A faint rainbow up the sky
Sky from light blue to greyish blue

Blue I feel when you’re not with me
Me and you, I say with a plea

Plea that we will endure this isolation
Isolation from the rest of the world
World in this flat horizon, not one soul
Soul, heart and spirit, they are one

One tower, some houses by the cliff
Cliff high, I cover my head with a kerchief

Kerchief over my head tied under my chin
Chin moves when I see you and grin

Grin we will and make the most of it
It will only get better, let’s hope
Hope for a better and brighter future
Future beckons, now is the time to deliver

Deliver us from the nightmares of ennui
Ennui, perhaps not when I’m with thee

Thee or thou, hopefully love will last
Last longer and everything is a blast*
