The Great Silence by Beau Peyton

We received this lovely email and photo on Sunday...thanks, Beau!

"Love your sites, especially your "mountain trail" blog with the photos. Here's a picture I took in April of 2010, if you're interested. There'd been a good amount of rain that spring, so the ocotillo was really magnificent. Penned the poem in the Starlight…"

The Great Silence

ancient monoliths bronzed
standing firm
waves of sultry sand
softly shifting
fiery ocotillo
stretching sunward
faint sounds
like gentle notes in a song
the grand silence
the immensity of space
