Red Rock

Ron Singer

Red rock lifts my heart:

slabs and towers, pinnacles,

they startle me and lift my heart.

Gray rock painted by the rain:

painted streaks run down the rock,

their folds like folded paper,

black streaks down the rock,

painted by the rain.

Red rock startles, lifts my heart,

gray rock painted by the rain,

slabs and towers, pinnacles,

rocks with folds, streaks of rain.

The Painted Desert is one of the remarkable natural features found in the Navajo Nation Reservation, which includes parts of Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.
