When daylight diminishes
in the slot canyons,
conical sandstone peaks
gather late light.
Offer a warm glow 
before dusk arrives.

Sage, Juniper, and Pinyon Pine
combine their fragrances
into a high-desert incense:
inhaled, absorbed, remembered— 
resembling worship 
in this quiet cathedral. 

A perfect place
to point prayers of praise
toward heaven, 
and to listen
among the silent steeples
for God's voice.
