hear the silence roar
etched deep in the canyon cliffs
whose eyes have seen all

  1. ‘if only we could soak up their words’_”I vaguely remember the silence”_’this feels eternal’_u’ve chosen the right ‘witness’-for a lovely photo and poem..many thanks..

  2. I like your perspective in this haiku about the buildings of stone having watched history passing. Very nice.

  3. I heard the silence roar this past week as a flash flood filled the canyon. My Sycamore Canyon cliffs are witness to so much that we all miss in our daily lives. Your poem prods us to think about these things.

  4. Ah … I’ve been here and seen these cave dwellings myself. What a perfect title and image for this week’s prompt … and how lovely is your Haiku. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by Small Reflections too. I’m glad you love my blog ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

  5. “Hear the silence roar” is such a wonderful line – and I love the idea of Mesa Verde being a kind of living presence with eyes and memory. Beautiful photo too.

    Just finished a book from this area. I love the mystery of the place, and what you did with this poem.

writing is everything...
