Story Cliffs

STORY CLIFFS

 

Red cliffs loom over twisting green snake river

Wild and strange in the heat of day

Wild and stranger still by starry firmament lit

Dour demons of another time

 

Ancient spirits with forgotten names

Watch over this place

Threatening to plunge down

And rid this cut of strangers

 

Pages of unspoken history

Rise in print of Gods too old to know

Above, around and there ahead

The augery of futures past

 

I hear them now and then

In the thunder of the river drumming

In the whisper of the smoke trees

Speaking the stories of the Old Ones
