Altar Of The Mountain Gods   8 comments

Bear Canyon Trail at 7 Falls blogBear Canyon Trail Above Seven Falls — Image by kenne

Blessed with clouds
And only spotted rain,
Hiking the twelve-mile
Sabino Canyon loop trail
Down through Bear Canyon
Was rewarding and inspirational.

Entering the lower canyon
Above the falls
The clouds opened
Atop Bear Canyon
Kissing the peaks
Lighting nature’s altar.

Below the altar’s pinnacles
The Bear Canyon trail
Curves away from
The dry creek bed
Under which water flows
Feeding the seven falls.

The steep rocky canyon walls
Provide a stark environment
For plants to grow.
Even so, the stately saguaros
Are able to survive as sentinels
In this mountain sanctuary.

Offering a serene haven
For the mountain gods,
Keepers of the mountain ways,
To nurture the healing spirits
Honed by the ancients’ as
Guardians of the canyon trails.
