A poetic tribute to the Grand Canyon.
Iridescent beams of copper gleam
across this golden chasm,
I stand in reverence,
awed, by this magnificent landscape.
Variegated light, sparked by clouds,
mix up the tints
eyes looking front ~ hope floats
through my consciousness ~ like the emerald ribbon below.
Opposites attracted ~ this gorge of ambition
versus the progress of mankind
complementing each other ~ in everlasting graciousness
interdependencies apparent ~ gazing beyond this chasm.
Ravens fly, deer roam,
free, in the winter sun.
Quietly, a rare occurrence,
in this commercialized world.
Yet, despite the confines of culture
nature conquers ~ this commercialism
refusing to be,
limited by man’s devices.
