What If Sleeping Giants Woke?

Thoughts revisited on Earth Day.

MairImages.ca Blog

What if the mountains
Were the faces
Of long ago giants
Turned now, sleeping,
Toward the blue ceiling
Of the sky;
What if the earth
Were their blanket
And the sea waves
Long ago
Rocked them
Gently to sleep;
What if
They did not wake
To see their faces
Changed with the passing
Of time
When little men came
And carved into
And burrowed through
And terraced and furrowed
Their features,
And grew strange plants
Upon them
In strange ways.
What if they cried
In their sleep,
Rivers and waterfalls
That filled the sea
Beside them,
Sometimes moved abruptly
Tossing and turning
As if to shake
The little creatures off.
What if
They awakened?

Together

We are each our own person, essentially alone; and yet we grow stronger through our connections with others, through the many ways we and they love and care for each other.

We Are Islands, Margaret Mair, original art We Are Islands, Margaret Mair, original art

We are stronger together,
Our dreams entangled,
Our hopes entwined.
We are stronger together,
Guarding our selves
While
Guarding each other.
Today
Sun may bless us
And blue skies cover us
Resting here easy on
A quiet ocean bed.
But there are dark clouds
In the misty distance
And trouble will come;
Let us take this vow
Now,
So that when
Days grow hard
And
The winds of fate howl
Like angry wolves
At the gate
When
The sea grows rough
Mountainous waves tumbling
In cascades of foam
Across each other,
When the sun hides
Behind a grey turmoil
Of clouds,
We will
Protect each other
From the onslaught,
Will hold on to each other
Strong and stronger,
Surviving the storm
Together.
