Time walked here

Monument Valley Navajo Park, Arizona, United States of America
Time walked here
Aeons ago
Leaving its footprints
On the landscape

Not to become
Icons of Hollywood
But to impress upon the inhabitants
Where the true source
Can be found

Not in things
But in presence

Not in permanence
But in change

For without change
These footsteps
Could never be

Without presence
I would not be here
Breathing in spectacular beauty
Enjoying the unanswerable riddles
Of the universe

Monument Valley Navajo Park
Arizona, United States of America
