Heading to the Horizon

Dawn on the River Corrib
Dawn on the River Corrib

Written on hearing a talk about doing the Camino, when heading out the walker told us his favourite part was looking at the horizon and telling himself he would see beyond it that night. I though, thats the approach we need to have to life, hence this verse!

With the sun at your back at the break of the day
To the west, the horizon, the walker makes way
Step by step and in time, that place out of sight
Shall sleep in having walked beyond the horizon that night.

Our challenges in life, are us stretching to yawn
We see not the answer, as beyond the horizon at dawn
Let us rise to the challenge, let us meet and beat the test
With the spirit of the walker as at dawn they head west!

Have your say...
