My best friend Suzanne "Lily" Isham wrote this poem, and I have put it to her photography from a hiking trip she took to the Haunted Canyon in Arizona... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To Simply Be
In the surreal hush of early morning the brilliant color filled dawn pours slowly into the enormous sky another chance at happiness graciously given freely
I stand at the edge of a desert expanse and breathe in the scent of the wild trails stretch out endlessly before me as I choose which branch to discover beginning my journey for the day
in the sun bleached sands of cacti the mountains stretch out before me I close my eyes and open my arms wide in greeting and asking them to guide
I lift my tired face to the sun and let the warm breezes whisper ancient secrets through my hair revitalizing my spirit in purity of place
the silence is so loud here but loneliness does not exist I give thanks for being allowed entrance to witness the magical life of this misunderstood place
I have wandered into another time seeing past to the depths of what is truly here and hope the land stays hidden forever where I walk and feel and wonder and see where I escape into Nature and simply be.
