“The Lure of the Exotic” by Robert O. Adair


Somewhere,

beyond the horizon,

over the next ridge,

beyond the next

bend in the river,

an unfound door

in a rocky cliff,

in a hidden valley

a lost city as old as time

with architecture

undreamed of,

a river flowing

from hidden sources

from uncharted wilderness,

a cave leading to a vast,

underground sea,

the far reaches

of space and time
