Dos Mundos

~

In Charlottesville

     there are four seasons;

For Farmington,

     less so.

 

Equidistant

     more than reason;

For Farmington,

     more snow.

 

I live apart,

     two separate worlds –

 

One, in culture,

     East Coast finds;

Another features

     high terrains.

 

Of which, does Nature

     or human creature,

With Time, will one

     the longer retain?

 

~

One thinks that mankind

     always ‘tames,’

Whilst Nature comes

     to run and reign.

 

Man will leave

     his mark of fame;

But Nature stays:

     Retains and claims.

 

~

And Charlottesville

     sits next a range –

The Appalachian

     Mountain Chain.

 

For Farmington,

     the San Juan Basin;

Her history

     now long forgotten.

 

~

In both the yoke

     of Nature binds,

While culture’s creations

     Time unwinds.
