While in southern Utah we drove through this beautiful park on a splendid weather day on our way to St. George, Utah where we would be spending the night before driving on to Las Vegas. More Zion National Park images later.

“A serene solidified sanctuary where

Sandstone towers seem like sentinels

Savoring the rays of the searing sun

Accentuating the red rock’s rusty colors”

11. Meditation

Our life’s greatest challenges will be won
With the spirit and not by the sinews
At times next to you the Dance’s ghosts run
Other times they can be found within you

Smooth, rolling strides become my rhythm and rhymes
Subtly pick open my heart and mind’s locks
At peace, I'm inured to passage of time 
A slack-jawed Buddha floats between the rocks

Sun-baked vermillion cliff, eternity 
Spirit of the wild, you are the portal 
Stretching out to you, encompassing me 
Melt, intertwine, these moments immortal 

Fallen angels, my soul is expurging
When the body, mind, and soul are merging

Being in the right place at the right time
is knowing how to stay active and look around
as if it were your last day on earth.
It’s a wonderful world out there.

I am—yet what I am none cares or knows; 
My friends forsake me like a memory lost: 
I am the self-consumer of my woes— 
They rise and vanish in oblivious host, 
Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes 
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed 
— from “I Am” by John Clare

A few remaining clouds

sailed into the sunset

leaving behind

golden sandstone cathedrals,

soon to be dark silhouettes

against the glow

of desert night sky.
