The Red in the Rock



The red in the rock at Sedona…


The Ancient Ones say spirits

blew rose-colored sand,

piling up crimson spires

across the primal land.


Early pioneers say elements

in the earth’s deep crust

aligned to its core with

blood, colored rust.


Mother Nature says her waters

in the form of rain

washed away the dull

rock layers, so plain.


New Agers say a vortex

a swirling center of shock

brings out the inner beauty

of the old natural rock.


Archaeologists say the earth

in its turbulent renown,

the Colorado Plateau all

turned upside down.


Scientists say it’s iron

atop layers all earthen

soils oh, so prehistoric

oxidized by the sun.


Its Creator says

from the beginning

the beauty of Sedona lands

has glorified alone the work

of My Holy Hands.


Genesis 1

Isaiah 40:28

Psalm 90:2
