The Gathering

The Gathering

The sun beckoned them
to the top of the hill
Hand in hand in a circle
Experiencing the thrill
They felt each other’s blood
as it coursed through their veins
As if all one organism
Simultaneously breaking chains
As the sun rose in the sky
Its early light kissed the ground
Infusing its energy into them all
and the day was crowned
One sun, one earth, one people
So was their creed
They passed the pipe of peace
and inhaled the weed

    you did this so beautifully Christine! like a cascade poem to me, you start from the apex of the photo and summit of thought and link it all back to lifeblood and connections. I cannot think of a more wonderful piece of art by words than this one.
