Topophilia

 

DSCN8329

For the love of place,

Topographies of faces,

And of sacred spaces

 

Tracing footsteps,

Traces of dust and sand

Across the land,

Tracing steps

Back to their roots

 

Roots anchored deep

In the entrails of the land

Entangled in the past

The present and the future

Landscapes,

Rugged coastlines

And curving spines

Of ancient mountains

 

Mapping out trails

Cross-country

Crossing rails

Railway-lines

From ancient times

 

The ebb and flow

Of time, of tides

Show

Memories of faces

But do even

Sacred places

Remain the same?
