April Prompts #24
David’s #3: Explain how you got here
HOW WE GOT HERE
Some of us came from the Red Sea
and some from the steppes.
We lighted fires wherever we went.
I remember the Zagros Mountains,
the shores of the Black Sea,
the dark caves in the high hills.
Sometimes we walked by walls of ice,
sometimes we slept in trees.
We were hungry, and hunted.
We were frightened at night.
We were frightened of anything
we did not comprehend.
We made patterns on the ground.
We made pictures in the stars.
We made pictures on the stones.
We told stories to make us brave.
We sang to make us braver.
Our children are full of our songs.
