Sea Lions on the Shore


Fearless in Galapagos

Fear, like the sound of the wind,
may go unnoticed 
until branches scrape 
and canyons howl;
or most preciously 
when it is suddenly still. 

Imagine that fearless silence,
spacious as the horizon,
where the song behind the wind
rings clear, 
fills immensity -
Welcome to paradise.
