"Echoes"




a scattered breeze

visits the valley

of my lungs


as my voice

sinks a droplet

into the ocean

of hollow air


meeting the faces

of granite skin

and mountain




My family and I took a road trip to visit the Grand Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the world. A great inspiration found me as I tried to explain the vast, empty space between the rock faces. I tried to imagine a triumphant shout into the still, probably rugged, air. I hope I've captured the awe I felt, and I recommend you visit the site yourself one day.
