Monument Valley

if you listen
midst the silence of the valley
the voices of the Elders from the monuments
whisper down,

“You are welcome here.
This land to which we were entrusted
by the Great Creator of all things
is ours to tend,
is ours to share,
is ours to enjoy,
but not ours to keep;

for we pass it down to our children
with the same admonition”

and in what seems a barren setting,
abundant in desolation,
lacking in precipitation,
we look to the monuments
whose beauty stands as a reminder
that in such a harsh place
we are not forgotten
by Him
