Life uncertain,
ponder silence
Still waters speak,
reflect the past
Enduring stone,
settles the soul
Endless expanse,
nurtures the path
Follow the curve,
embrace the edge

    • It’s amazing how the rocks change over even the shortest distances. The rock formations around the Phoenix area are starkly different from those that are barely 20 miles away. It’s a beautiful thing to see! πŸ™‚


  1. That’s a beautiful photo, but I particularly like how you ended this piece of poem with ’embrace the edge’ … something makes me feel like it’s not going to be easy, but you’ll have to do it, to get there.


  2. Stones – Native Americans call them ‘The Ancestors’. They have a steadfastness about them and, yet, they do change over time through erosion from the elements.

    Your words imply a bit of mystery around the corner and a ‘living on the edge’ philosophy that I like. πŸ™‚
