north of beijing

142. the great wall

snaking along the northern asian mountains

the great wall of china still stands

a testimony to the lack of unity in mankind

a reminder that we must all get past history

past our differences, shed all fear

that biggest of illusions, that impedes us

from remembering that the only reality is love

that we are all part of one loving one

the great monument is not the stones, the parapets, the steps

it is the majestic mountain range

undulating the surface of the earth as far as my eyes can see

that display of nature’s magnificence is greatness, beauty, awe

humbled by the great mother

gratitude for life fills my soul
