Sunrise - Monument Valley

bighugelabs.com/flickr/onblack.php?id=527970794&size=...

 

It is dark

shapes loom all around

reaching out with primordial hands

thrust up in prayer

a thin belt of light

golden against turquoise

calls to the original ones

hidden in silhouette

dawning their red robes

dark matter explodes

a gash rips the sky

the cold lashes the plateau

for an instant only the wind roams

knowingly caressing

transforming buttes on the level of pebbles

and the gust steals back fire

from the departing night

and warm blankets modestly cover

the secrets of the old ones
