A friend in N Zealand contributed many original ideas to this work. Thank you, Rissotto – I enjoyed working with you on this one…

Mysterious moon casting pure light on tranquil evening ‘scape

Fiery orb irradiating surface of still water –

reflecting ghost-like images of tall unbending pines…

Rocky out-crops testify to tougher times,

barriers which call forth gritty endurance


Answers to the inner me,

All shrouded in darkness,

except for that light,  gleaming

from the Central Sphere,

Whose never failing Presence

Cheers me to my goal
