      Crossroads
       
       
       
       
      I am out walking a field path,
      light is failing.
      In the distance I see a man
      coming in my direction.
       
      He is further than I thought.
      The path twists and turns
      there are gullies and hills.
      Perspectives are deceptive
      and horizons shift.
       
      The light is poor
      but we are drawing nearer.
      The trail unwinding
      into a line of sight.
       
      He is close
      but does not seem to notice me.
      We converge like twilight does-
      between two dreams.
       
      I recall once
      I was out too late
      and the dark came upon me.
      Until this moment
      I thought I had made it home.
       
      Now I see
      that I am still walking head down
      out of sight
      and only
      seeing myself by chance
      where
      two dreams meet.
