15: The Bay of Uri.

The slopes are lost in mist
and all we see is now and here –
the day will fade to dusk
and youth will age, and leaves will wear…

And yet it seems impossible
that any part of Nature, any place, could die!
But Nature’s seeming standstill that you see
is just a trick that’s played upon your eyes;
your vision blurred by speed; the shortness of our lives.
