Something New

Everything continues as it has

until it doesn’t,

water flows downhill

until it won’t,

dinosaurs sleep in ice

with green grass in their teeth,

fearless armies march

to Napoleon’s latest ditch,

then the long pause

while power gathers

within the sleeping earth,

giants awaken and stars come to life

with songs of something very new…

    Having just come off a “RAW” weekend training in ID, the wildness, beauty and “newness” resonate deeply.
