The sky is lit up behind the clouds
And the water only reflects what it cannot see.
A bridge that extends into forever
Leaving the city behind.
A boat floats past;
So much larger than the one that played in my tub as a child.
There’s so much about the world that I don’t know
And so much more that a boat can tell.
In the distance, mountains rise up
Covered by thin mist.
The world, too, is covered in a veil
That even pictures cannot uncover.
