About The Blog

Arthor Journer is my pen name.
"Arthor" comprises "art" + "Author" while "Journer" defines the journey that I was on and continue to travel.
In this blog is the emotional byproduct of this journey.

"Rites of Art" is the title because it is my "writes" of passage.

Far And Yet So Near

The sun is well hid behind the mask of clouds
Earth covered in this sullen gray shroud
But warmth can be felt that is so dear
Rays penetrate from so far and yet so near
You call to me over mountain, land, and sea
Echoes ring in my ears of your words to me
The sound waves travel over miles but are clear
Each note from a source so far and yet so near
Stars adorn the evening sky of black
Like sprinkled sugar on a dark velvet back
But the brilliant lights shine from year to year
Reaching us through miles so far and yet so near
Your heart shivers and my soul dances
My mind blushes red at each of your glances
I long for you and my soul sheds a tear
For we are apart so far and yet so near
Waves are covertly born in some distant land
Where mighty winds and water dance hand and hand
We see their last tango as they crash the pier
From a home that is so far and yet so near
I dream of your caress and your voice so true
Wish you would appear like abstruse dew
I miss you for with you there’s no fear
For surely we are so far and yet so near
