Watercolor by Barry Pariser
There must be a reason
The giant, hulking
Stands silently
With aching shoulders
And grey, tired eyes.
Has he seen too much?
From his lofty view
Above the tall grass
Has he taken in all
The light and loss
His world has to offer.
Has there been
Too many trumpeted calls
To fight to survive
Or maybe flee
For the sake of another tomorrow.
Now he is tired and mostly
Glad to be ignored.
Then on rare occasion
A young male stands near him
And seemingly by sheer proximity
Tries to absorb his solitary strength.
Our giant from a time long past,
Stands very still and
Simply closes his eyes.
