Ever Deeper, Ever Darker ~ #writephoto

In the photo for Thursday Photo Prompt: Faraway #writephoto at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, I see depth and distance. I have no other explanation for the poem that follows.

Ever Deeper, Ever Darker

Your path lies in a distance
deeper than the farthest reaches of the horizon.

How to follow, when your course knows no direction
other than an ever-widening spiral that leads back on itself?

The closer we become,
the higher the walls between us.

Do you miss the company, or revel in the solitary
nature of canyons ever in darkness?

I want to know you in the light of a sun
that does not set even before it rises.

You would have that sun never be,
widening the distance between us until I no longer want to follow.

  1. I like how the relationship between the narrator and whoever he is talking about, is really open. It could be at any time or place. The photo looks other worldly to me. The poem could be taken literally as well as metaphorically (in my imagination anyway). 🙂
