June 19, 2013 – “Pioneers: Now & Near”

This desert must’ve one day been thought insurmountable;

Between colossal dunes, freezing nights, & the howls of wolfs;

Something like crossing through the knot of a thousand ropes.

Past failures to current nomads a house of bones,

Somewhere to rest & then rouse the hope

To get beyond such astounding slopes.


The drifting shadows of the clouds dancing above them

Must’ve been proof to them that they too could step through.
