We admire our sleeping giants
destructive creation
reaching to the sky

Blind to the memory
of the mountainsides melting
into the molten center of the Earth

We live our peace
accept the quiet
leaving off the danger of proximity

Gambling with the years
on a countdown we ignore

Holding our fragile grace
in the shadow of our end – Caroline A. Slee

Down the Mountainside…
