Poem – Finding Home in the Chaos – Part 2

We hike for hours, having left
the flat fields, the trail
twists and turns toward a
peak overlooking a wide valley
filled with trees past their peak.

The valley empties into a lake
filling horizon with what
is discarded, what is no longer
useful here, to be dispersed
out to sea into the cosmos.

Darkness descends quickly and
the horizon merges with the sea
pushing yellow lights
attached to incoming ships.

stars push aside the last sun light
and join the moon.
