Visible Horizon


Visible Horizon

The intersection of earth and sky is called the visible horizon. Often times I look to the horizon as if it held the future. The word horizon derives from the Greek “ὁρίζων κύκλος” (horizōn kyklos), “separating circle”, from the verb “ὁρίζω” (horizō), “to divide, to separate”, and that from “ὅρος” (oros), “boundary, landmark”. Observing boundaries I hope to see the light on the horizon.

  1. Thanks Heather and Kayarebel, the horizon has been a big influence on my greenygrey writing and folding mirror poetry themes.

    I wish to emphasize here the difference between “perceived horizon” and lack of any actual dividing line between the light we see on “our side” of the “horizon” and that perceived on the “other” side!
