Canyon Watcher

I watch
Sweeping land sleeping
Under the blazing sun where
Prickly pear and lonely lizard are
living in eternal dryness.

I watch
Shimmering waters winding
Beneath towering cliffs of
Chiseled layers of ancient stone
Rising to the sky.

I watch
Balancing boulders threatening
To topple, joining their
Brothers laying on the ground
Eroding with time.

I watch
Arching sandstone, opening
Windows with their wonderous
Views looking into God's mind
Telling his story.
