This land was made for you and Me

Unfolding

 

We rule a country, you and me

Not very large, I’ll concede

It stretches no further than the edges of the bed

But within those borders

We are the absolute authority

And the sole inhabitants

We form the hills and dunes

We crease the valleys

And we are the seismic forces

That move mountains and

Labyrinth the plains

When we slumber

The lands roll gently

But there are those insomnolent eons

When the country quakes

Pillows tumble

And the shifting landscape

Forms tableaus of creation myths.

 

 

 

 

 

Words and image are my own.
