From void into vision, from vision to mind, from mind into speech, from speech to the tribe, from the tribe into din.

An Ecological Vision from Gary Snyder

 From Gary Snyder's essay "Four Changes" [1969]

recast as a found poem,

still a fertile vision:

A technology of communication, education,

and quiet transportation,

land-use being

sensitive to the properties of each region... 

Careful but intensive agriculture

in the great alluvial valleys,

deserts left wild for those

who would live there by skill. 

Computer technicians who run

the plant part of the year

and walk

along with the Elk

in their migrations

during the rest.
