Grand Canyon Inspiration

The brilliant hues of sunset
Are frozen in the rock
Stripes of layered limestone
Stored in ancient block

Vistas vast and startling
Span both north and south
With pinnacles and valleys
Within earth’s open mouth

That little ribbon blue
A mile or so below
Is mighty Colorado
Where screaming rafters flow

And near to me the precipice
Whose sheer hypnotic cliff
Disorients observers
And lures some to their death

This vast and mighty canyon
Is more than just a hole
It staggers imagination
It touches thoughtful soul

The God who made it happen
Also wrote the Book
But here He simply says to us,
“You see, I made you look!”
