I stem from all that has been created.
I carry with me the legacy of life that has come before me.
I have been unearthed by the dryness of the land,
While the threatening heat of the sun tries to defeat me.
But my strength is limitless as I must maintain my beauty.
For you, I continue.
I continue to be the carrier of life,
The force of what moves you in ways which you struggle to understand my purpose.
It is my complexities that amaze you.
I am the source of what feeds your need for beauty, for life…
I nurture souls that have been depleted.
I comfort and protect you in ways you sometimes overlook.
I inspire your words that turn into prose, paintings and photos.
I am the mirrored reflection of your strength and tenacity.
I too, am life.
