First steps

I search

the road

in your eyes

stretching knowingly

for something

yet undiscovered

a milepost

waiting to be counted

a milestone

waiting to be recognized

the future ticking

along anxious distances

an itching journey

just below the surface

sail pointed forward

just beyond the horizon

but first the leap

no illumination, no navigation

unknown darkness

only a choice

and a question

Which way from here?
