Taming the Wildernes

Paintings and Verse by Dr Abe V Rotor 
Tropical Rainforest in acrylic (2 ft x 5 ft) 

Moss on Rock in acrylic (2 ft x 5 ft)

I'm a stranger in the wilderness,
     wandering without a guide;
until the wilderness tamed me,
     to become once more its child.

Wilderness was born too, I thought,
     a child once upon a time;
I saw a rock cliff covered with moss,
     and wandered over the clime.    

I witness the transformation of life:
     rock to soil, moss to forest;
eons of time back, and far beyond;  
     chronicler -   I'm truly blest.~
