A Tethered Journey

Written by: John Boyle

Between the eyes of another dream.. I saw..
The dawn and eve of another world afar..
Void distance mid direction... And restless awe..
Barred from my reach...Ere my senses sat ajar..

Nere there one cloud above.. Nor warm streams to flock..
Only droplets gathering 'neath shadow's veils..
'Gainst briny sky and stars... Amidst bed of rock...
Twas in mine mind I thought ~ 'Pon wandering trails..

A storied horseman .. 'Pon a tethered journey...
An immortal grave face mocking undaunted ...
Put forth 'tween the half seas...Of the eyes I see..
O'er where my head lies.. Where dreams are forbid..

Yet still...Now awake...Stunned by my rabid heart..
No cause.. Have I to dream ~ Of this I part...
