Under Giant’s Eye

A view of our sleeping giant, Fall Mountain, North Walpole, NH

 I was raised in the shadow of the mountain;
an ever-present, ever-watchful giant
who vigilantly guards our village.

A fierce protector; we’d rarely hear
his voice except when thunder threatened…
then when he would echo a noise
so loud…so terrifying… it
could chase any storm away.

Returning to my village, 
once again I feel the
giant’s watchful eye,
and know that I am home.
