Grand Canyon - Arizona, USA

When something is:

So big you can't comprehend

So beautiful there are no words to say

So impressive you feel you stand on holy ground

So perfect people journey worldwide just to gaze upon its grandeur

So endless the river will forever change it

So colorful each day with the rising and setting of the sun

So often tried but never conquered

So old it will forever be this way

So we know we are small and without Him really nothing at all

So designed by God, a natural wonder

    Great metaphors of description here. Seen it only twice myself and close together too. So much variety. I like the thought in the line "So endless the river will forever change it." It has changed endlessly over the centuries and will continue to change through eternity. PS thanks for your recent comment on my piece, Multiple Choices.

    This is a wonderful poetic advertsement. Good luck in contest. We only made it half way there from Vegas-too afraid to drive through the desert in the dark coming home.

    No pictures or a phrase can show another what you yourself so wonderously know. That first look out beyond the rim. You swear the Angels are singing a hymn. Redwoods sound awsome. Maybe someday. Peace. :)
