(Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

An Enchanted Canyon


A life hiker I was
with heart wide open,
entered an enchanted canyon,
nature's love a hopin'

The dirt said 'love me' I did, stepping on her firmness.

The sage said, 'brush against me, and feel me lover'
so I did this with earnest

The birds sung joy to me, swirling upward, gracefully!

The canyon walls were calling, echoing, 'court me, court me! '

The sky was above effortlessly
imparting warm love,
soft clouds, rocks were firm,
not compromising
but offering strength as I scaled them, rising.


The natural symphony screamed, 'TAKE ME! '
And took it all in I did!

I moved thru her, swam in her waters, climbed the trees,
moved thru her bush, touched her walls, rolled in the dirt,
warmed on her rocks.
An amazing love fest, but just a flirt!

She was no longer outside of me,
but in me, and me in her,
of me, ONE with me!
All life to thee defer!

A life hiker, just a day in the sun?
Maybe, maybe there is more
than just continual fun?

    This could be just at it appears, a colorful description of a hiker's day spent in a canyon... or, it could be about a time of darkness in the writer's life when he drew closer to God, Either way, I appreciated it very much. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
