On Dead Horse Point

Posted on

Indigo on the horizon
Cauliflower clouds
Drawn childlike
Merely touch ups
On this ancient artwork
Like a desert backdrop
I wait for the curtain to fall
To end this dream
And here lies
The beauty of reality
The reality of beauty
Am I afraid to take another step
For fear of falling off this stage?
I am but a spectator
In this production
One descending particle
Over sandstone cliffs
Where wild mustangs roamed


Gabriella joins the team at dVerse and inspired us to write a travel poetry piece.

This view will be forever imprinted in my brain along with the

 Legend of Dead Horse Point.

  5. The beauty of the Southwest is as you say breathtaking.. and to stand there on the precipice you wonder if you ever will be the same again.

  6. This is a beautiful poem for a stunning view. Sometimes we come upon a place that speaks to our souls in a way other places do not and this stays with us forever. I too like ‘The beauty of reality / The reality of beauty’.

  7. The photo you have shared almost takes my breath away, and your poem does it justice. I very much like the beauty of reality and the reality of beauty. We really need to think about those two words are connected. We are all indeed spectators in the play of nature, I think.
