Landscape.

These ancient mountains

that curl round us

hold many deep secrets

in their rocky structure

that help the huge diversity

of life that proliferates

in this this small wise area,

and these secrets boil out

into our violent souls

as we pillage the land

and dishonor each other

to the point of destructive

landslides re-patterning

our beings and the exteriors

as life struggles on in this dry

and cracking landscape of our time.
