Lost Canyon

Lost Canyon

Old pathways through canyon bottom
erased by wind and sand
overgrown by time’s twisting brambles
dry stream bed empty of human prints
lost canyon winds its way
into the past heart of youth

    Dear Pen, Perhaps someday I could show you my favorite places … and you could show me yours! I can dream, can’t I?

  6. Monica says:

    Thank you, Bluebee. It’s a journey into the past for me. We used to backpack into this canyon before children and dogs. When we were carefree, and cows grazed in the park, leaving their calling cards but also a trail through the wilderness.

  7. Monica says:

    Thanks, Sandy. It really was.

    I am so, so jealous Monica, … to actually stand there amid scenery which seems not to have changed for numerous millennia, wearing a coat of past mystery… Lost Canyon, your words again describe the scenes to perfection…Heart-stoppingly good… xPenx

    Beautiful poem evoking the ancient feel of this place, Monica.

    That is really nice of you to say. I don’t have the skill with the computer you do, so the pictures definitely add something.

    A nice addition to your blogs Monica and I always
    like to see pictures added as they truly enhance the
    poetry with a wonderful edge… Be good now
