The Photograph A moment in a box, In a moment when it stops, Still. No mildew drops, No tree tops sway. A petrified landscape On a stationary day. The motionless actions Captured and tamed. Our treasures are chosen, Our memories saved. That moment in a box, In a moment when it all Stops still. The Becoming The Earth and soil becomes us, Returning to the ground. Where our roots sprung from And new seeds found. An evolution Zion; Once born, Decay, Rebound. The land whereon we walked Returns us to the ground. Our fate is inexorable, The fruit that turned to mound. The laws of nature spoken, Its amity so profound. When we are part of everything; Content, Fulfilled, Rebound. The land in which we came from Returns us to the ground.

The wisdom in your poems is so soft footed I hardly heard it coming.
