THE EDGE OF THE EARTH

Updated: Nov 7, 2023


I climbed and crawled,

Walked and hiked and biked.

I scratched my way

Up to the edge

The very edge

The edge of the earth.

Dare I go farther

For there it was and

The portal, the gate

To pass through,

Simple unassuming

Yet alluring.


To go, or thru

Or not

Should I? Should I not.

After all I made it here

On the edge of my scratchy nails

Where?

The edge of the earth. To the end


YES!

Through the gate

That simple

Opening go I

Where earth meets other

Stepping thru,

A giant step

Falling

Falling

Falling

Round and round

Into

The End.

Author’s Note: the phrase “to the ends of the earth,” has always intrigued me. So I thought I would give it a try. Try it. One step beyond. It’s somewhere along the Blue Ridge. There. Just step through - The End.
