The Asking

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

The undiscovered land
of the high desert
takes our faces
in her hands
and asks,
“What kind of people
are we?”

“What kind of people
do we want to become?”

She has a way
of changing us
as we walk past
the rocky, dark soils
with giant cedars,
the singular mountain,
and the coyote
moving in his spring dance.

This undiscovered land
takes our faces
in both her hands….
and asks….

and asks….

a design by Alazanto, Kevin Davis, our son

Note: Kevin was best known as a web designer. His designs were given as examples in books published both in the United States and Japan. In addition he did a number of art designs of which Viquae is one. Typographically expressive, Kevin said, about this design: “The wings, faces, reflection, and roots are represenative of the creative mind.”
