‘Nation of Two’

I have climbed the mountain The wished for, in order to scatter your ashes. Your life cut short by how our larger nations settle their clashes. But, we were a nation of two, ready to take on the arms and letters upon the earth. In your absence I know not what to do. In your absence, no presence of worth.

This underwater sculpture garden off the coast of Cancun reminds us that life is fragile, and that human endeavors have frailty to them. Original photographer unknown. Original sculpture artist unknown. The poem by Emily Dickinson figured prominently in Tom Burmester’s ‘Nation of Two’. The live theatre production is still playing at the Bruka Theatre in Reno, NV.
