Endless Beauty

Red crevassed walls reaching upward,
Reaching to blend with the hazy blue skies,
Endless is the beauty of you.

Blue and white waters meander onward,
Reaching to blend with the ends of time,
Endless is the beauty of you.

How, in so many billions of years,
Could the river of your bellows carve this?
This endless beauty of you.

Hard rock walls, penetrated by the flow,
Forever, the impudence of  majestic glory,
Endless is the beauty of you.

I'll say lovely and descriptive. And I love the pics of your puppies, how adorable. Me and my husband are huge animal lovers. We have 4 dogs, a cat and a bird.

You are very creative. Love how you write. The description of the picture makes it more breathtaking then the picture itself.

Alegria Imperial said...

The last stanza is magnificent..."the impudence of majestic glory"! How else could it be? And you wrote the exact words. Thank YOU!

The repetition couldn't be more true - such endless beauty rolling through it, carved deep into the very rocks that rise before us. Great description, you've got a knack for words here - and I'm going to have to go with the crowd on this one, and say that line, "the impudence of majestic glory," really takes the cake. Delightful!

A feeling of inevitability and time, as well as beauty, here. A bit of an echo of the ballade form with that last line repeating. Nice.

Maureen said...

I have to agree with the others about that line "impudence of majestic glory". Lovely reflection.

How, in so many billions of years,
Could the river of your bellows carve this?
