Life's horizons quietly close in.
The big picture blurs
as small details assume indescribable importance
and fragments of memory dissolve.
The world waits for us to rediscover it.
As if to say
'Been waiting. What kept you?'
For a blinding blurring brilliant instant
The horizon rolls back to the sky
And reveals what we still can be.
by Kit Wilson
This poem was written in celebration
of my first sail after eleven years of
CFIDS (see my 'about me' page if you
aren't familiar with CFIDS), the same
illness his wife is improving from.
Thank you, Kit!
