The blues and greys, tinge of green
into fire yellow and golden orange.
The sun setting amongst the birds soaring – flying free.
Symbolism here…they (our tour guides) say, is everything.


To the West is a Dome outlined by the light golden sunset.
Light emits truth?  Rather light illuminates what is dark
and makes that previously hidden, known.
And so light plays an important part in Our narrative,
our telling of the story as gathered from and experienced –
as heard, seen, felt in the heart and the mind.


Everything from something
or one concept from many “scholars.”


Many voices…very little silence… though much crying,
grieving – hard conviction and stark unwelcome realization too.


Patches – essential to the fabric that creates this blanket of warmth,
of life, of love, of the human condition.
