the mesa of prophesy

the mesa of prophesy

here alone i stand
watching for a sign of things to come
but am bombarded only by the past

once proud people
no longer found amongst the stones
forced to hide where fire cannot reach

daughters of seers
mothers and sisters learned in ways of old
cannot teach their songs in fear

  1. First, adore the title. Don’t know why, but I do.
    I love the images you have here too, particularly the last stanza.
    But I also feel like there’s more that you’re leaving out–more between the stanzas, which you may have intentionally left out as it leaves much room for imagination.
