Grand Canyon Portrait in Word

cascading water
flows into braided rivers
rush of white water

palaces of sandstone
towering monolith
statuesque splendor

weathered mosaics
ancient cathedrals carved in stone
natures masterpiece

    I flew over the Grand Canyon twice on my way to Las Vegas. Even from an altitude of over thirty thousand feet, it looks wondrous. You have described it well in this fine work.

    Reminds me of my trip to the Grand Canyon - your poems capture it well. You utilized this Asian form very skillfully. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
