Hannah, offered a prompt for Transforming Friday-sorry, I am late.
Antelope Canyon, USA-is hauntingly beautiful!
"The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means "the place where water runs through rocks" and the Lower Antelope Canyon is Hazdistazí or "spiral rock arches." Both are located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation." -Thank you, Hannah for this magical prompt~

Secret Love Child
The Antelope knows of their secret love child-
Tears from the sun fall often
she casts off her ribbons of sunset
Cadence of patterns shift
speak of their union
moon remembers nightly he paints with moonbeams-
shadow puppets for his child.
Honey eyed girl-her face is scrubbed pink by sands of time
wind is her caregiver-
Our sweet girl will never know muddy green of day
or see the ocean's kiss
Mom's loosened curls spiral downward
and tickle her daughter's face
the glow of her peach skin tilts upward
towards her parents' slow waltz
Tousled light reflects halos of gold
tunneled n' trapped like flowing caramel kisses.
Sign Language helps parents cope
their unhinged happiness
like Origami folds
as gently wind protects their girl
and paints mirrors of her parent's light
