Keepers of the Land




The land was sacred once
No earth left fallow
Nor fouled with wast
***
The land sustained us
Till glory succumbed
To greed and haste

Really loved the picture and the poem (as I always do). I love visiting here! You are a true artist.

Isn't that poem the truth? Of course, as a mom of a 3 and 2 year old, my mind has gone to mush. Especially with toilet training. Do you know that the first thing I saw when I looked at those tee-pees were 4 rolls of Kirland toilet paper? Now that's sad.

Hi Pam,

I like this image a lot. I feel such a strong connection to the people who lived here before the Europeans came. I went to the American Indian Museum in D.C. last year, and was so emotional (ie: sad, teary).

Thanks for the good insight on my blog. You selected three excellent things about Christmas: FOOD, family, lights.
