Canyon winds whisper softly.
Stars speak through the night.
Constellations sing into the sky.
The song of peace is in the silence of leaves.
Oneness with the sleeping land
comforts our earthly dreams.
Beauty hidden by darkness shouts
in loud bold brightness
as daylight delights the senses.
Grandeur never imagined, huge rock pillars
rise tall in majestic glory,
formed by an unseen hand.
Serenity accompanies exploration,
God’s playground…a symphony
of dust, wind and water.
