King's Canyon

Lift yourself
to the realm of the domes

Footstep over footstep
climb ancient sandstone
cleft
  split
    layered
      stacked
into an ochre coronet
backdropped blue

Stop
Look

Life in every crease
Rooted in rock

Tenacious
  tantalising
    jewellery
      in King's crown

Listen
...
...
...
...

Dawdle on in awe
  welcomed
    exploring majesty
      viewing forever

Time past comprehension
beneath every step
