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.

Goodbye,

Bryce Canyon

I’ll be leaving

you behind.

I’m going to

Zion and Sedona

where I hope to stay

to the rhythm

of a slow marcha —

remember the hoodoos,

remember the colors,

remember the winds.

Growing Orbits

I live my life in growing orbits
which move out over the things of the world.
Perhaps I can never achieve the last,
but that will be my attempt.

I am circling around God, around the ancient tower,
and I have been circling for a thousand years,
and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm,
or a great song.

Bryce Canyon is a rare dynamic, mesmerizing place that is truly poetry in stone. The climate that over time has weathered the cliffs and bulbous columns, called hoodoos that continue to evolve from freezing night and warm afternoons with summer thunderstorms dissolving the limestone creating a clay ooze that eroded the cliffs forming the hoodoos. Sometimes being slow is the best way of getting things done as new hoodoos are formed while others are reduced to lumps of clay. What once was an inland sea today provides one of natures wonderful sights.

Court of the Patriarchs, Zion Canyon   2 comments

Zion (1 of 1)-3 Court of the Patriarchs blogCourt of the Patriarchs, Zion Canyon — Image by kenne

On this cloudy day

we rode the
canyon shuttle
getting off
at each stop

with family
visiting the
park for the
first time.

Concerned the
clouds might
diminish the
canyon’s beauty

soon vanished
as the clouds
began to break up
over the towering

cliffs of Navajo
sandstone that
form the Court
of the Patriarchs.
