A Nebulous Canyon Fissure

DocFile (5)

A deep fissure

along the canyon wall

nebulous water flowing

the mystery of it all

 

Going deeper

a wonderous world unfolds

sun beams of color

a story being told

 

New life

living on the edge

fighting for survival

in between a wedge

 

Small animals appear

looking for relief

sun beams down

heat beyond belief

 

Within the fissure

water begins to evaporate

a short lifespan

how did life rate

 

Nebulous water disappears

without a sign or trace

carving more of the fissure

more beauty awaits

 

The canyon is alive

so much nourishment to give

helping all creatures

with a life well lived

Hidden: A Canyon Key Hole

Grand Canyon Survive

 

Beyond the key hole

there is a hidden treasure

looking through the hole

it is hard to measure

 

There in the landscape

vibrant colors appear

the valley takes shape

as sounds grow near

 

A river runs

carving out a masterpiece

ever changing

palettes and artistry increase

 

Glancing through the hole

a bird appears

gracefully following the wind

singing voice is clear

 

There is a cave

filled with mystery

hidden colors and shapes

some of it eerie

 

Through the canyon key hole

the view is like a looking glass

filled with a unique view

of a spectacular land mass

Disappear: Joy in the Rising Sun

DocFile (8)

Slowly rising sun

above the mountain top

wildlife is scurrying

with no reason to stop

 

Morning dew sparkles

with rainbows everywhere

drops are flowing

there is no time to spare

 

The sun filters

shadows disappear

plants welcome the light

there is nothing to fear

 

Morning flowers bloom

humming birds fly through the air

sweet nectar flowing

aerial  battles with a flair

 

Water crackling

what a sweet sound

cheering on the morning sun

comfort to all around

 

Anxiety disappears

living in the moment now

expressing joy in spirit

sun taking a bow

Enroll: A Nature Course

DocFile (2)

Enrolled in a course

to learn the history of this place

surrounded by natural beauty

learning at my own pace

 

This canyon was carved

by a river long ago

strong water falls and currents

nature’s great flow

 

There are native people

who settled on the banks

having a unique culture

food from the water they drank

 

There is much wildlife

in this desolate land

working together to thrive

in the canyon sand

 

There is something spiritual

as the rain falls from the sky

providing a stunning rainbow

a feast for the eye

 

Meditation over

becoming one with the land and sun

marveling as history is made

this journey is fun

A Steady Life

DocFile (9)

 

Glancing across the canyon

questioning my loyalty to the land

the sun is rising

my thoughts are in a band

 

Distant colors that

change throughout the day

is my life faithful

do I know the way

 

Clouds across the sky

wandering from plain to plain

can I follow them

do they have a name

 

The view has shifted

with the movement of the sun

am I loyal to my beliefs

or give in to temptation and run

 

The canyon is beautiful

loving this way of life

choosing to stay loyal

overcome the strife

 

Meditation is over

grateful for God’s grace

my soul is at peace

life a slow steady pace

A Stinging Meditation

DocFile (9)

 

Glancing across the valley

seeking out a dream

recreating a day

before running out of steam

 

Meditation on the canyon

beauty all around

observing the curves of life

some are spellbound

 

Suddenly a sting

dripped from my eye

a tear remembering a

day gone by

 

A lost love one

appeared in front of me

words of wisdom to hear

a vision to see

 

Dreams are not dead

only put on hold

time to move ahead

live your life as gold

 

Kindness and love

a path to take

achieve your dream

it’s not too late

 

My loved one vanished

tear is now dry

begin this day with a dream

never too late to try

 

Meditation is over

love never ends

we continue to grow

as our journey trends

Canyon Top Meditation

DocFile (2)

Fog descending on

the canyon top

blocking out the color

does not seem to stop

 

Morning meditation

canyon hidden away

mind is foggy

on this summer day

 

Beautiful country

so much nature to see

wonderful colors with power

a treat for me

 

The fog is lifting

textures starting to appear

new sights and sounds

pleasant to my ear

 

Meditation continues

parts of  nature  return

many different roads to take

many curves to turn

 

My soul is nourished

the journey continues

life is slowly unfolding

lessons on the menu

 

Meditation is over

adventure on the way

living in the light

blessings on this day

A Gate Meditation

Grand Canyon Survive

Hole in a canyon

gate to another time

the planet is living

the sun continues to shine

 

On this beautiful morning

meditation listening to sound

the gate is calling

birds singing in the round

 

The gate tells of a story

from long ago

the river was raging

carving as it goes

 

Things being created

God has a plan

sounds of life

from the river and land

 

It is peaceful now

gate continuing the story

calm changes in nature

no need to worry

 

Meditation is over

time to return to life’s gate

my soul is nourished

a story to relate

Beautiful Soil Meditation

DocFile (2)

On this morning meditation

observing the beautiful soil

wonderful colors and textures

land which is unspoiled

 

God made us from the soil

connected to the land

able to sense the harmony

like in a band

 

Connected to each other

diverse in every way

made in many colors

beautiful places to stay

 

Loving one another

preserving this great land

from the highest mountains

to the desert sands

 

The soil is rich

God provides for our needs

kindness to one another

way to live and heed

 

Thankful this day

for God’s provision

meditation is over

thankful for the vision

A Dash of Nature

DocFile (8)

God created nature

dashes of rivers and trees

an abundance of beauty

for you and me

 

A dash of kindness

with plenty to spare

enough for us

to spread and compare

 

A dash of love

enough to share

loving one another

the cupboard is never bare

 

A mixture of diversity

loving people everywhere

hopes and dreams

enough to share

 

God provides for all of us

dashes of grace

enough of substance

for life’s issues we face

 

Taking in the beauty

of this abundant land

loving one another

taking each other’s hand

 

Wishing you well

on this awesome day

may you smile

and never feel gray
