     For my found poem I used page 54 and 55.  These pages are mostly about totem poles and describes how they decay over time.  As I read this page it reminded me of my trip to Skedans and seeing the remaining totem poles still standing where they were hundreds of years ago.  The tranquility and grandeur of the totems are breathtaking and while they are decaying and returning to the earth they hold their nobility and power.  I wanted to use my poem to describe the totems on their last legs, and the feeling that watching them decay induces.  I used my image to reflect the theme of returning to the earth, I also wanted to portray a feeling of peace.
