Horizon Views

Horizon Views

Ocean to horizon…
land to horizon…
a woman stands
between.

She stares at the distance
and dreams of where
driftwood was born
as its temporary home
snags her shore.

She watches the curvature
of the earth flatten toward her
as tumbleweeds gallop
into the sea as buried treasure.

She rushes in with surf
spattering her face
in champagne-like
bursting bubbles.

She views desert heat waves
conjure illusions colliding
in her equator life
of between horizons.


Diane Webster enjoys the challenge of transforming images into words. If she can envision her poem, she can write what she sees and her readers can visualize her ideas. That’s the excitement of writing. Her work has appeared in Better Than Starbucks, The Evansville Review, Caveat Lector, and other literary magazines.
