Rugged Beauty

 So much peacefulness within
our rugged landscape

veins within veins of outstanding colors

painted the dusky brown red walls


                  This rugged terrain with ledges skirting


then plunging suddenly downward

with nature's natural earth webbing


Turning myself into twisting shadows
stretching myself through endless
corridors of embracing canyons

Only my  silent footsteps became

the only mark left along

the exhilarating pathway


                         Walking slowly through this
                              rugged peacefulness


My eyes filled with wonderment imagery

with no poetic words to express clearly

All Alone in the desert
I am not ever afraid

I have never been in a desert but your descriptive words describe the beauty around you.  alone but really not so alone with your thoughts to pen words for us to join you in your walk.

Thank you taking us with you where you visited. Wouldn't ask for a better company in this amazing journey to one of the nature's wondrous scenery.
