A Beginning & An End

Time is an infant
a new beginning, a new end
What came before is relived

We feel with our eyes,
The pristine magic of earth

Flat wooded shores, white oaks
Redwoods are sages,
They whisper of the past

We see the native ones,
as they lived in harmony

The great plains of grass
The desert of painted dunes
A myriad of purple hues

Herds of buffalo roam,
no man can own them

The nomads of the plains
the cliff dwellers of the desert
farm with ancient secrets

We come on great ships
sailing salty seas

White greed captures and owns,
it destroys all and itself as well
Cities covered with darkness

A beginning will be born to end
A civilized world shall remain savage

WOW!! You capture this comprehensive "myth" of the beginning and end of all things excellently with your signal sparceness and economy... but the images are abundant and rich and very loaded - nothing impoverished here! Fantasticly broad canvas but filled with telling detail. Makes me think of the wisdom and enduring qualities of cave paintings. Excellent... I'd better strike a match to get more light in this Indianna vault!! :)) TY Kate xx

Narrated in the simplest fashion, with the right economy of words, you tell it as it is Dale !
The nature of the beast will never change, and primeval savagery is at the heart of it !
Wonderful and expressive composition !
