Eternity begins here calls the long dusty road.
Colorless sky, endless landscape, motionless tree,
barren branches contain only empty nests.
A presence can be felt but not heard.
Silence prevails and shadows are the only measure of time.
Lone figure strolling down road on horizon,
coming back from past or lost in present?
Weathered sign beside road reads retirement.
Destination, or just a pause in the journey
