A Canyon, Stars And You

excitement and adventure awaits
fresh air, sun, moon, and stars
a canyon so vast, and beautiful
showing millions of years
through rock formations
of splendid earth colors
in tones of sand and beige
deep reds, purple, and pink,
with shades of brown and tan
and mesmerizing sienna
surrounded by an azure sky
with a tapestry of twinkling stars
sparkling in evening blue
you and I, let's explore together
this beauty beyond belief

loverly thoughts put perfectly into verse exciting!
I love the movement of this poem. It starts with the title as my eyes see the canyon, then go up to the stars, and symbolically further up to the beloved. In the body of the poem the movement is the same but more complex. You describe the colors of the canyon with fine distinctions in shade, and this description holds us in this place of wonder. Then under the blue evening sky you and your beloved begin your trek through these wonders. This poem reveals many loves: of nature, of time and place, of the person by your side.
