First was dirt and rocks
and green things that grew
wild and had no name
and there was no memory of a beginning.
Oceans carved the design,
rivers traced the curve of light
that fell from ridges
into valleys.
Listening screech and coo nestled
and focused on becoming timeless
by creating more.

Time has swept a path
across the distance
from then to now.
With secret language that has always been
this hallowed ground is still a home
where soft voices rise and fall together
and footsteps catch
the rhythm of the stairs,
familiar as the sunset from
the bedroom window
and the afternoon breeze
that stirs the office papers.

Ending it with the office papers was extremely clever. Well done, Martie.
