A dying tree in a wasteland


Two versions in pencil and pastel 

Model of a landscape – watershed, the source of
freshwater In lakes and rivers, home and farm.
Creating a living landscape from a wasteland

Neighborhood children at work with author.  Concentration and 
reflection, imagination and creativity are important in composition.  

Neither they are men of letters - not yet -
nor artists, masters on all levels;
But kids growing up fast to rise someday  
above their dreams and models.

How can kids tell a story beautiful to the eyes
of God and men, of peace and joy,
Sans the spirit of the pen, the pain of living?
oh yes, by drawing, a tool and toy.

Pure they are by heart and thought and soul;  
while the sun rises to its summit,
touching the trees, the sea, the landscape,
doubtless for whosoever's sake

But their own, their future, so with mankind,
unknowing, unquestioning, obliging
to a guiding hand strong with faith and trial,
    whose golden sun is sinking, sinking.  ~
