HAVASUPAI

 The gorgeous Havasu Falls of Havasupai in Spring.

 

I use my legs with gratitude everyday,

to walk and run and hike.

 

But when I came upon this place,

 

then I felt I could lay aside my weary legs

and take up a tail.

 

...

dragonflies and moon milk:

a turquoise honey flowing from the crystal caverns

of the inner Earth

pours into a great dusty sand bowl

settling into white baths

that overflow like spilled sunshine.

...

 

We were the ones who woke at 3

under stars

in the back of the car

to stretch tired bones

undertaking pilgrimage

to this sacred site.

Pockets filled with smiles, seeds and a little

leftover cabbage

we followed the river lines

along the canyon walls.

Breath . Breath . Breath

A sunrise and purple flowers.

Shaded alcoves and

the sound of hooves from far away.

Pink blooming cactus rose

and a lazy afternoon spent sleeping when the sun was out.

 

Awakening only to find I am still dreaming...
