VisDare 64: Awash

Prompt: http://anonymouslegacy1.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/visdare-64-awash/

Just because we could see the other side of the lake didn’t mean we knew what we would find when we got there. The distance kept changing – some days, we could see hills and trees, other days, just the faint shadow of something that was more than horizon. As we built the raft, tying branches from fallen pines together, the old ones warned against our going. If the gods had wanted us to be over there, we would have been put there. But the other side was there, and it called to us.

It seemed like our voyage would be short, no more than a day, or two. But though the other side remained visible, it never got any closer. Our side, our home, got further away, however, until one day, all we could see was something that was more than horizon to our west and nothing to our east.
