Canyon Celebration


Canyon Celebration

Deep within sandstone walls
Memories of seas long gone
Written in the ages before words
Etched by wind
Water.

Distant rains on mesas high
Rushing over slick rock and down laughing falls
Drowning the ages
From today
The past.

Scare raindrops rushing down
Seeking the cliff bottoms
Hiding from arid winds
Quick
Hide.

Water racing away
Down slots of stone
Hidden liquid treasure
Of Life
Death.

I won the Poetry Palace Perfect Poet Award for Week 50 with this entry.

The Hurrah
For When you
Pass
Back
Homeward bond.
