Thank you to the judges at the 2021 Solano County Fair for awarding this poem an honorable mention. It is inspired by visiting the Grand Canyon. This poem has also aired on KPFA and KZCT.
Forming Temples in the Sky Standing at the edge of the earth in a place before time where all things begin and end. History is carved on these rocks that jut out on the horizon line, forming temples in a rainbow of time, but time is the furthest thing from our minds. A soft breeze blows all our worries away. Only awe remains. Beauty so grand that no replica can compare.
