little light

there was a bright light on the horizon

standing guard of the night

a small sun setting

like it has since forever

it, there, guided my sea faring ancestors

across vast oceans

it, there, told my peoples story

of beginnings and ends and love and war

that point there on the horizon

has hung there since everything

and i will die beneath it

my children and theirs will

and thats ok

because that is human

  1. I love the reference to the seafaring people and the ocean. My first love, my go-to place, my sanctuary is the ocean. Coming from an Island Nation, the Sea has always been a BIG part of my life, personally and through my ancestral heritage too so this resonates with me. Nice one Ben. You have done it again. As usual, your work never disappoints.
