Upon Discovering a Body of Water

DSCI0415Placid pond far away from assault


Set the sun free on the rippling current


Emerging from the woods into the water,

immersed in peace.


Veins of the Earth

Veins of the Earth

A slit carved into the ground
winding, spiraling past roots of our elders
like a wound opening up,
the blood of the earth flowing past.

Its true source can never be found.
It starts where we began,
flowing forever forward
Carrying us on until the last.
