the writing on the wall


written in rock
beyond words
notching time
in circles
and lines

of sun
of towering trees
and a lonely caveman
by dimly lit fire
painting dreams

follow the star tracks
embers and smoke-black
bring the new moon back
twirl the world ‘round again

the hymn
of ancient earth plays
the cave
with songs of stars
as unfoiled light streams
scene after unfolding scene

a graffiti of unity
ochre-stain hands
reach out
bind us all
in the ageless embrace
of sacred places
and rock faces

we like children,
gape at the simple relay,
symbols of life and stone
these words that our ancestors
left us
alive inside cave-wombs.
