Singing Canyon

5 May


A song rises from faint shadows
in the deep canyon.  Pulsing
chant echoes over black stone
walls, the calling of spirits moving
among tall reeds beside a silent stream.

Spirit music spills over the canyon’s
rim and covers the land like a soft
blanket, announcing to all living
beings, “We are here.”

In the swaying rhythm of the reeds,
in each flash of sunlight embracing
wet stones, in sacred murals
speaking from the canvas of canyon
walls, in the wind that carries
our song across the Earth,
“We are here.”
