We’ve had a relationship with the natural
world since the dawn of our species – longer, perhaps.
Stone, an artefact of Earth, is a case in point –
stone tools, stone houses – stone henge; cathedrals of stone.
Plastic figurines are not the same as sculptures
crafted in stone – people don’t respond the same way.
Energy of some sort flows between us and stone;
humans respond to natural materials.
Our vocabulary to talk about this flow
is limited; words fail to allow discussion.
I observe there’s some intangible, undefined
energetic relationship for humankind.
I’m sure you know what I mean, but I can’t talk with
open clarity about my observations.
Our energetic relationship does exist,
ancient and true; I fear for what we can’t discuss.
