Too Far Away

look, over there, looking through the trees
in the gap between those trees
that patch of yellow stone
can you see the spire?

it’s a church
if you think it is
it’s a yellow birch
if you think it is
it’s just a yellow rock
if you think it is

not till you’re up close
after you’ve covered the
distance between
when you can see
and touch
and feel
and know
will you believe it is
what it is
a church
a tree
or just a yellow rock

Too Far Away
