Ghost of Desert Past

Standing high
on canyon’s edge,
the ghost of desert past
stands watch.

Resisting harsh winds,
while chiming to the beat,
of erratic gusts that
threaten passersby
hiking Phoneline Trail.

For hundreds of years
this canyon sentinel
maintains its charge.

Like old soldiers,
not to die,
only fading into time past,
already meeting with the
“vanished ones.”
