    Gaze to the west ...

    Gaze to the west from my high perch,
    to where the sun descends
    behind those hills.

    Dragging my heart towards that glow
    that burnishes the sea
    and haunts the air.

    With the dusk comes the warm twilight
    that links my soul to all
    those others there.

    Release my grip on want, need.
    In that gold light I can
    forget my ills.

    Evocative poem; enjoyed the subtle rhyme in each stanza's L3: hills/air/there/ills, or ABBA which I found endearing

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
