Landscapes

These things we do to landscapes

Of space and time
Of politics and social norms
Of family and friends

The things that stay
But never stay the same

The ephemeral things
Lost and soon forgotten

Nothing ever stays
But change

Which is often the point
Of these things we do to landscapes

Change the landscape
Change each other
Change ourselves

Gratitude ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #150

The sun rises into a cloud-softened sky
Gentle foothills roll lazily to a distant horizon
A solo journey through an ungentle darkness ends
As I arrive in the light I realize
I am no longer alone, was never really alone
That no one arrives in such light
Entirely alone

I am struck by the depth of gratitude
Rising like a sun with my own inner light
For the guidance, support and encouragement
Offered by family and friends and mentors
And the generous kindness of strangers
Who have made of themselves
Friends

I stand here
In the light
With my platoon
Ready to take on
Anything

Thank You
