HITHER

Wanderer, exile in hither realm
wand of prayer, source of strength
where the dead dwell, beyond
a veil, freed by faith from time
to know the print of life
indelible map, outline etched
as though on glass, transparent
prophecy, seen in sensitive reflection
of sunshine, transitive being lodged
in separation of space, traveler along
the horizon, absent from the other place
.
