Southwest 23: Destination Anticipation

Anticipating South Rim

Some fifty epochs later
from a desert rise,
I see a gulf extending
in the looming distance.
The sun is illuminating
the far-off sterling shore,
while the bay appears sublimely
blue like polished turquoise
placed within a skylit

setting. Heavenly,
except I apprehend
it’s Arizona and
the ocean is some several
compasses away.
Grand Canyon is a sea
of atmosphere abounding
inbetween the stratums
amassed in expectation.
