Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Remember when the whole world was at arms length?

Portfolio | Become A Fan
T'was once the world awoke
Not knowing east or west
But where the sun arose
Surrounded by horizons far,
threatening.

When clouds were blown
Into the fearful yonder
Out of sight, their fullness emptied.

T'was once the world, then too,
unknown, was great,
greater than the many or the whole.
And unknown and yet known
Where heads were laid.

Not thinking 'This is my world'
but that world where each of us
In countless worlds are known.

T'was once the world held in the eye
Was all that was returned, in cries
As echoes from the distant hills,
encompassed only by that within
The out stretched hand.

Darkness lowers then from t'other hill,
and cools the axes edge with sleep.
T'was once the earth was but meat and rest
And time and distance then as but a dream'

Author Notes
When the world was simply as big as the distance his arrow would fly.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
