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.

So true. Organic materials have an authenticity and beauty that can't be mimicked.

Rich I love this
I love the deep 'mystery' of it - and you have put it so well.
