Mesa Verde

Yucca plant fruit, Juniper seed,
Not working for want, but living for need.

Hand and foot holes, dug out of stone,
isolated, but not alone.

Medieval dark ages, a world apart,
beneath the alcove, ancient art.

Anasazi spirit, whispers through the trees,
if one could hear, what the sandstone sees.

From the Sipapu, the sacred ascent,
Pueblos constructed, with skilled intent.

Stories and culture, slowly unlearned,
beneath the mesa top rubble, charred and burned.

The mystery remains, and hope renewed,
that my descendants will learn from me,

As I, from you.
