Closer than infinity

Closer than infinity
Gazing into infinity
It seems

But perched here
On the hillside
A few hundred feet high
It is just 20 miles
To where the sea
Touches the sky

So it is with everything
We think too large
To grasp
To bear
To overcome

The horizon
Is so much closer
Than it seems
