Canyon (haiga)

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon

panoramic view

breathtaking.

mystic breeze

whistles in the shade

telling tales

 ~

sun shines

canyon awaits

twilight

spirits roam

whispering legends

coyote howls.

        As they say here, “ya done good”! 🙂

It is similar with a diamond … diamonds become how they from a very rough form …

  1. Justine asked my question. That picture of the Canyon is astounding. I knew I had been to the canyon before, a couple of times, but I had forgotten until Sreejit mentioned it that we took a horseback ride into the Grand Canyon.

    Your poem is beautiful too…..

    1. Thank you. I searched many canyons all over the world and was surprised to see we have many in Canada too…not like Grand Canyon but still…someday I would love to visit the Fraser Canyon in BC.
