There are no walls in the forest

Where eagles rise with the tailwinds

And chlorophyll canopies shadow dance

Over moss carpet floors


Morning glory knows no barriers

Roots of the gnarled oak

Venture out in every direction

Baring their bones to the sun


Willows welcome the lark’s sweet song

Arms reach out without thought

Embracing those that walk peaceful paths

Embracing those that do not

so many different faces
coming from a myriad of places
to occupy the vast spaces
of this new land.
joyful faces
worn faces
fearful faces
hopeful faces
forsaking ancient histories
weaving new patterns of life
designing the face of the future
creating a yet untold story.
