The Canyon of my Dreams

Under
The Arizona
Sky,I loosened
My kerchief,
In this
Parched,
Majestic
Land.

img_1298_400As the
Colorado
River sweeps
Through the
Canyon of
My dreams.

For
I am here,
Yes I am;
I am here,
Indeed
I am.

Along
The river,
Across the
Sea;the
Furrowed
Canyon,the
Harrowed
Land.

For
I have
Travelled
Far and
Wide:
The
Toiling
Farmers
In the sun,
The toiling
Fishermen
On the seas:
The roiling
Boiling
Seas.

From
Arizona
To Japan;
From the
Temples
Of Siam;
To the
Canyon
Of my
Dreams.

You did
Take my
Breath
Away:
The
Mighty
Canyon
Of my
Dreams.

A
Rainbow
Of colours
Washing
The land
Like a cinema;
The ochre,
Violet,brown,
Red rusty
Land.

The
Buzzards
Circling
Under
The orange
Sun over
Green
Fleshy
Cacti:to
The
Crying
Of eagle
Calls.

Like a
Grand
Opera
Sweeping
The land;
Millions
Of years
In production.

As
Beads
Of sweat
Playfully
Trickle
Down my
Cheeks
Under
The
Burning
Arizona
Sun;a
Smile
Of relief
Sweeps
My face.

For
When
I return
Home,
The
Journey
Will be
Lingering
In my
Thoughts
Still.

For
I was here,
Here I was;
I was here,
Yes I was.

Brother NIkos,
if i may be a bit presumptious, I, too, experienced many of these same Feelings and Thoughts while hiking up and down the Grand Canyon, and riding along the Colorado River. Thank you for expressing your experience so beautifully and succintly.

America has fascinated me for such a long time; so much more to see of that beautiful country ☺
