Moments on Easter Island

Cast in stone

statues in the morning sun

reflections of another time

when alive to run

Each one solitary

guarding the coast like a lamb

overlooking the horizon

on the small island

Expressions of another time

a culture’s story to be told

all that remains is a mystery

of the lives of old

Not forgotten

many visit the strange land

making up stories

some singing with a band

Some believe the natives

came from outer space

bringing great knowledge

hidden on the stony face

Others believe they are energy

awakening at dawn

haunting the visitors

floating on the lawn

A testament to time

these relics live on

resting peacefully in the sun

silently representing those long gone
