Anvil Rock

A Poem by C.T. Bailey
















Anvil Rock

Bury me here.
Leave me
in this place.
Mark the spot 
with only the soles
of your boots. 

Let me lie here
under starry
desert sky.
Then remember
me. Tell them 
stories. Long

stories with
grand endings.
The eagle
and coyote
will stand watch
as the Juniper

wipes away my
memory with waxy
fingers. 
Then ride this way 
no more. 
Bury me here.

You know... I think I've read this piece before! lol Why don't you post the photo with the poem here on the WC.

A beautiful flow of words you've got going here. They bring across a serene calm while the ever present feeling of peace echoes throughout.

Great Ink!
