the land between them


November 9, 2021

we have above
we have below
and we have the land between them.

Bridges to distant lands
connect us

These bridges must be
watched, guarded,
and maintained.

Eden had a flaming sword.

This land is no empire.
No town. No village.

It is but a garden
with growth underneath
and above
