Canyon Song


Ah beautiful places

where we come

risk our lives as though

we’re gifted more

than just this precious one

icy water’s cold

reflects a wide eye blue

summer serene sky

swallowing our breath

a final anti hero cry

mighty river song barely a ripple

flows on by





Deer signals begin at dusk with forest edge foot stomp

left right (accented) wait. Observe repeat

Moon hides herself from watchers’ sight

White horse fly dances deking sundogs at play

rides rides all through a moonless starless night

We crouch between stones amid tall fragrant grasses

Witnesses: shadow exchanges of grace and wisdom.

Our bleeding feet tap a steady heartbeat rhythm

marking what it is words cannot convey

This day this day old dawn breaks away

Moonhorse returns this time to stay.
