Tall, strong, rock silhouettes stand amidst a humble background as their backs jet above the horizon and naturally arch in the sky while their smooth grey hands reach out to one another in firm friendship. The Giants stand substantially affixed with rocky roots grounded in the foundation of Mother Earth’s tough love.
A rivalry is born as time ticks steadily with vicious tenacity.
Time ticks befriending the wind, opposing tall strong rock backs turning them old – shrinking.
Time ticks befriending the water, rushing and gushing forcefully pushing and pulling their firm grip of friendship apart.
Time ticks befriending the feet of heavy machinery methodically beating down Giants – shrinking.
Time ticks befriending the waves, lapping and splashing meticulously biting and chewing Giants apart.
A humble background announces its timely moment.
Surrendering to the burden of age
Giants slowly decay into
the water grains
of Giants are seized by bothersome tides
that feed their captives to currents and return to
the shore in a devoted dance of admiration. Currents
pass grains to a deep that opportunistically devours
New humble ground breathes freely and sleeps to the sound of singing ocean shores as an ancient rivalry lives on and time continues to quietly tick with vicious tenacity.
