    Slip Over the Edge

    Posted in Blogs on Thursday, 30 November 2017

      Quietly slip over the edge; disappear without a trace. Follow the old trails.   The canyon trails are worn smooth by bare feet or reed sandals. Centuries old hand-holds are still there.   Trails wind down to hidden pools. Deep shade is cool below the canyon rim. Hot sunlight is a stranger down here.   The breeze builds toward the afternoon, channeled up the narrow canyon. It’s cool among the willows.   A dove bathes in the shallow stream. A hummingbird hovers for an instant - just checking you out.   Time passes slowly down here but centuries could skip by unobserved; quietly slipping over the edge.    Enchanted, More or Less – 2017 https://malpaisweb.wordpress.com/
