Our Land, Our Home

DSCF1635

the land we bow
before in reverence
 
covered up as it is,
now, by things human-
 
made, our efforts, our
sweat over centuries,
 
to better our chances,
to strive for golden
 
opportunity, but what
is it we have been
 
piling up, layer by
layer, on top of the
 
warmest, purest gold
we could know? the
 
land beneath, ever-
churning, moving,
 
breathing from deep
within, where the
 
wells of wisdom are.
may our human
 
endeavors be always
in service of the land,
 
our true home, she of
fire, earth, water, air. – TS
