Rocks in Black & White

The Canadian Shield,
where rugged pines stretch,
reach for endless skies,
taking root in rocky shores.

We set boulders in our gardens
to anchor us against untimely storms,
or perhaps to remind us of endurance
when everything else falls away.

Even the satisfying crunch of stones on our path
fascinates – the varied hues and forms, like art,
incite searches for undiscovered treasures –
a stone to become our own – nature’s grounding.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
