Grand Canyon Changes You!
Here, Blog-Buddies, is a rare occurrence. A poem, yet it’s not my annual one about Christmas. Back from seeing the Grand Canyon!
Waking there at sunrise changes you.
Another time, if you’re lucky, you will chance upon a sunset, freshly painted
just as a full moon rises.
This will open such a chasm
beneath your heart
yet instantaneously bring such healing, such new hope
that you may never recover.
Now, what if you should be more fortunate still?
What if you could stand on the Grand Canyon’s rim?
How high might your heart rise then?
Might you fall into nowhere?
Canyon space dropping down before you
until your mouth opening, cheeks all emptied,
your eyes open wide as flying saucers:
Thus, it dawns within you
you are here, here, here
and everywhere now.
