Grand Canyon Winter

Grand Canyon winter

Buttes caped in the whitest robes

Pure and unspoiled

A picture perfect postcard

Painted by the Master’s hand


A beautiful sight

Burnished under an endless sky

Her majesty unchallenged

She harbors life in this cold

Though her shores appear barren


Deer, eagle, rabbit

All survive her harsh winter

As done for eons

Wondrous in their fortitude

Man has yet to ruin them


Protected from harm

One of the seven wonders

She most surely is

May this always be so

For generations to come
