Pegasus materialized in the rain
with graceful stride
and calm determination.
It seemed there was no quest so grand.
Nothing was hidden from our fixed eyes.
This was the picture we saw
from the north end of the lake
with it's frozen stare back at the sky
capturing the stillness all around.
Something so dead here
had turned its back on life long ago
until the mystery unfolded
like a message revealed
when the millennia of dust is brushed from cave drawings.
He found us on this simple day
we spend in quiet contemplation
of the missing hours in our lives.
And we are here because you asked
why heaven is so far away.
