Maybe it’s fog, or mist, or a cloud in
fetal form, or maybe it is something else
that has come for a time to teach us to look
close in because we are so often set on far
horizons.

What is your perspective?

This is what I know:

that which
you can’t
see is what
turns a
hermit
into a
master.

  1. Beautiful observation, Jamie! I've felt the same about darkness, that it draws close the reach of our senses -- with the astounding exception that it opens to our gaze to something we could never see during daylight: the stars.
