Resolution

 
 
 ometimes I think horizon clouds are mountains
Augmenting so my flattened Jersey world
The ridge up yonder tilts my heart and vision
The distant valley beckons, arms unfurled

I'd slip away from all I ever wanted
And float into the hills upon a breeze
A truer child of nature never wandered
Divorced from shapeless cares and destinies

The orange sky encompasses a lifetime
The fantasy enriches end of day
I'll turn my back and choose to make my heaven
Among the fields I've tended 'long the way



This poem was conceived during a late afternoon country drive, explored musically back in the studio, and later incorporated as the fifth and final movement of Fairy Knowe Suite
