Southwest 28: Sing Woman, Dawn On

Sunrise Grand Canyon

The canyon rides the sunrise like
a rider in the quiet waking
household after household more
than miles apart from one another.
More than light is dawning on
the canyon buttes and temples. More
than my desire for views is being

satisfied this morning. Something
deeper is emerging from
the darkness saturated with
a geological expression.
Something left unsaid is being
calculated by the nano-
second. Nothing marks the limits

of our life like some big hole
within the earth and nothing shall
illuminate our destiny
a little more than emptiness
made manifest by dawn. And I’m
not sure just what it is but I’m
sure blessed to be a part of it.
