Horizon’s Limit

It was so obvious it had to be true, thought Leonardo:
the sun falls into the sea, like a pebble into a pond,
and the waves rush from their point of origin, crashing
on the shore before me. Yes, of course, he thought.
But now we know even the most brilliant seers
are fooled by that which is just beyond their sight.
