Mesa verde

Mesa Verde
Challenging steps along hand hewn paths groping for answers….
Listening, unheard for ancient tongues time denies…
Thirsting for understanding within derelict abodes…
Under unforgiving skies, earth dislodges her charges..
Generations lost too times shrug, no memories remain…
Motored, plastered, fallen monuments to those who came…
Built out of pried, that failure soon denied…
Who calls you father, mother or slave…
What lessons we take now from all that you gave..
Kiva, tower, stone walls that remain..
Decades without life giving hope in the form of rain…
Now seeing only structures built, dying in empty pain…
Gently falling erasing times reign, too latest came..
Green now a Mesa once home, a monument, none remain…
