Most people turn on the televisions
to receive their worldly news.
We turn to the petroglyphs
or watch the shooting stars above.
And the man who named these peaks
the “Blood of Christ Mountains”
saw through the filter of his learning
and used the only words he knew for that seeing.
Delphi won’t ever lose the beauty of weeds
or broken glass or leaves turning colors.
Nor will she turn her ear away from the creation song
when it is her time to feed to the world.
