It is an unfortunate fact the we have not taken good care of the land that has been placed in our guardianship. Hopefully, it is not too late.

    Metaphor For The Cycle Of Life

    Once a tree spoke to me in words of color and grace.

    I wanted the gold, and I sought it;
    I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.

    • By Charles Hemmelgarn
    • Published: December 2014
    Poem About The Beauty Of Alaska

    I know a place where the tall cotton grass blooms and blows,
    where the fireweed blazes and the nodding cattail grows
    a haven overgrown with ruddy cranberry and spongy moss
    emitting their tart scent the playful breeze does toss.
