Poem of the Day


Light and shadow

by Jenny Erlanger


The sun is low behind us

as we contemplate the view,

a vista to remind us

that we’re part of nature too.


We happily surrender

to the grandness of this spot

and know within its splendor

that we’re nothing but a dot.


Our shadows, in defiance,

take a more aggressive stand.

A family of giants

makes its mark upon the land.
