My Place in the World

Blurred lines on a highway at night.That one place…a place that feels like home…the place I belong?
It’s been the quest of my adult life.
As mysterious as the darkness beyond the reach of the car’s headlights on a pitch-black night
racing to punch through into the light
maybe around the next bend
that one place…
…my place in the world?

Middle of the Night

Abstract image of sunrise over the rippled sruface of a lake.

Almost noon in the middle of the night where time has never been

Ripples sneak across the surface without moving in space that never was

Light bends its waves in a continuum that will never be.

Power Lines

 

Power lines set against a vivid blue sky with farm fields in the foreground.

I’m flying a Piper Cub; the airstrip runs between the uprights.

No matter how steep I climb, no matter how high I fly, the power lines keep me hemmed in, they restrict my course.

Even at the edge of space it seems; they’re always in the frame, obstructing my photo, ruining artistic opportunities.

There’s no room to reverse course. Flying a Piper Cub at the edge of space makes breathing difficult. I begin to fall…panic…awake.
