Out West Poems – Into Sedona

 ~

~

From the Colorado North, into Sedona

.

We ride over a corner and the Ponderosa Pine

falls suddenly off to the left.

Entering the Oak Creek Canyon narrows

down to Sedona.

We walked a figure eight around the courthouse

then bell rock, a four mile entry into the city we’d call home for the next four nights.

Open Sedona
.

Sun iron details

around gated entrances

open Sedona

.

A tall ponderosa pine forest

along the drive of oak creek canyon falls

music beats through the intimate canyon river

.

From where we lodged we walked

around bell rock and the courthouse

with long shadows stepping on

hollow rock sounds

around the vortex.

.

The agave blooms life size

lily pad blossoms

held skyward and toward

the simple and very significant structure

The Chapel of the Holy Cross

we see from a climb up

Cathedral Rock.

.

Psychedelic colors of the desert blend

between sky blue, white purple, green

red-pink and lean down to the

Verde Valley, lush trees around Oak Creek

where small black birds open up a bright white

wing span.
