Vanishing Point

“All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”

– Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849),
U.S. poet and writer

VANISHING POINT

there is one dot of convergence –
a spot always somewhere ahead,
our ultimate goal.

we subsist in perpetual perspective;
never reaching the vanishing point
though we move farther
and farther to the fore
in pursuit of that goal elusive –

a speck virtual,
of shifting shades,
in the horizon of dreams.

our dream, we may not attain.
but we are reminded
of a beacon beckoning
from a Supreme Junction

where all matters vanish,
where all dreams converge!

(horizontal line is between sea and sky.
vanishing point is between lea and eye.)

– between line and point is position.
– between point and line is location.
