From the ashes of a town that bet & lost on silver mining
Rose men & women who threw off shackles of plight
Now there stands a resilient community thriving
Laughs ring out from the theatre of starlight

A few hundred yards from modest graves unmarked
Tenants ushered into earth by lungs of Mercury
Guided into realms endless by eyes of Saturn

Blessing the final journey upon which they embarked
Heaven unfurls the canopy of her graceful majesty
Intertwining all souls within the cosmic pattern
"Peace" is from "Backdrop To Infinity"; a forthcoming coffee table book of Big Bend produced in collaboration with my dear friend & fantastically talented landscape photographer Rowdy Winters
