The Human Landscape


The Human Landscape



Foraging through woods

along hidden trails

Searching for a meaning

A single kernel

The future moves forward

with inevitability

as the seasons fade

one into another

A metamorphosis

challenged by thoughts

set adrift

Fulfillment remains

in isolation

fragmented by fate

holding on to the


Longing for destiny

to reveal the illusion

A transitory refrain

etched in glass

Engraved in the

bark of a tree

highlighting the answer

to the question yet formed
