Totem Poles

The totem pole is the medium
the carvings on it the message
a telling of distant scenes, forgotten faces
history wrought by hand
of lives known from whispered tales
heard by children
and imprinted on nature's giants of the forest
from ringed years of growth
to a human story
intertwined by time in natures cauldron
of sun and wind and rain
a divine connection of elemental forces
celebrated by voice and hand
and a tribute to origins
among the whispering trees
and human songs
of the people below
