Arches National Park lies north of Moab in the state of Utah. Bordered by the Colorado River in the southeast, it’s
known as the site of more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, such as the massive, red-hued Delicate Arch in the
east. Long, thin Landscape Arch stands in Devils Garden to the north. Other geological formations include Balanced
Rock, towering over the desert landscape in the middle of the park.― Google

“While rises in the west the coastwise range,
slowly the hushed land —
Combustion at the astral core — the dorsal change
Of energy — convulsive shift of sand …
But we, who round the capes, the promontories
Where strange tongues vary messages of surf
Below grey citadels, repeating to the stars
The ancient names — return home to our own
Hearths, there to eat an apple and recall
The songs that gypsies dealt us at Marseille
Or how the priests walked — slowly through Bombay —
Or to read you, Walt, — knowing us in thrall”

— from 4. Cape Hatteras by Hart Crane

The river runs low

Farms and towns conserve water

As the west dries up.

Advice from a river.
Go with the flow,
immerse yourself in nature,
slow down and meander,
go around the obstacles,
be thoughtful of those downstream,
stay current,
the beauty is in the journey!

of these mountains
are no match against

the mighty river.
Weary of its motion

they open to
potent penetration.
