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

Arches

Under a moonlit sky
Stone arches tower above
Millennia in the making
Thoughts swirl through my head
Faster than the wind
Eroding my essence, like a smoothed stone
Shaping my being, sculpting my sense of self
Though the age old rocks whisper back
Only silence
For Mother Nature cares not for the trials of man
I am at the mercy of the beauty she created
Standing before me
In perfect silence

— Danny Strayer

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
