The Descent

Sedona, Arizona

Thanksgiving 2017 found my family in the midst of the Sedona Mountains. In search of its famous vortexes we found instead a man who carried hearts made from the earth. One each he gave us and in turn we offered him curious glances. Upon climbing further we found him perched atop the highest peak playing music for all to hear. He sang out for peace, joy, healing, and compassion. When he came down to greet us once more we were sure we had met an angel and had found our long awaited vortex.

When the world seems too big Mother Earth offers comfort
All we need is look
When the world’s flying by Father Sky offers respite
All we need is ask
Find a seat next to Her and look up to Him

Praying for peace of light in this darkened world
It’s shadow will never reach this spot
Quiet stillness accompanies this vast landscape
Nary a footfall reaches my ears

Atop a mountain sits an angel summoning musical notes of beauty
He calls to the land, to the souls, calling forth our eyes, ears and mind
As we rise, as we soar, we abandon our bodies
For in this light we see clearly
Arms outstretched as we ride the notes in the sky
For peace, joy, healing and compassion

Feet settling on the ground our journey ends
In the beginning we climbed searching
In the end we descend having been found

  1. I will always remember the gentleman we met on our hiking expedition. I wish you would of included a photo of the heart he gave each one of us. I would like to return to the same hilltop and seek him out and just listen to him play his flute and talk to the sky. That gentleman certainly qualifies as one of the strangest men I’ve ever met and I’m glad you were there to experience it. My initial reaction was to reach for my Ninja knife, as I expected to be kidnapped or conned, but nevertheless, just goes to show that you cannot judge a book by its cover. I believe God put him in our path.
