Zion Canyon Panorama — B&W Image by kenne

Mighty and dreadful are your tall columns here,

(through soul and love put you in deep shade)

for you outnumber man and outscore even life itself,

and you are roughly tied with God and, strangely, eyes.

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

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.

Bryce Canyon — “I have been circling for a thousand years.”   Leave a comment

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.

— R. M. Rilke

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.

Clouds Over Zion Canyon   1 comment

Zion Canyon is the work of water
In concert with the winds that shape the heart.
One sees a grandeur equal to one’s wonder;
Nor can one be, but of such grace a part.”
