I have been gone for far too long from this little page of mine. Ailsa’s weekly challenge is here to the rescue: This week’s theme is Deep.
Deep like the tunnels of San Cristóbal in Puerto Rico. Down-down they go to the dungeon, with its walls peeling, grooves for explosives over your head, and–the centerpiece of it all–wistful drawings of frigates, left, it is said, by a Spanish captain awaiting his execution over 300 years ago.
Deep like the ravines cut by the Colorado River. Here, the mighty river makes a U-turn through Glen Canyon, a hypnotic spot known as Horseshoe Bend. Have you been there?
Deep like spring grass in my back yard, at its most alive in April.
