COMPLETE TEXT: " FURNACE CREEK" (Front Pull-out Quoted and Bolded)
by Frank Elkins ©2016
"The Valley of Death is not half bad
from the comfort and luxury of Furnace Creek –
A tranquil pristine oasis with no worries
other than wanting to stay another week."
Time to reflect with friends or alone
on the wonder of astonishing desolation –
The existential beauty of sand and stone
midst the stark grandeur of your destination.
Warm mineral springs gently trickle and flow
into cool calming pools shimmering bright –
Dazzling stars break the black opaque skies
shattering the darkness with their heavenly light.
your soul reflects from whence it came –
Basking in the ever-present shadow of eternity
harkening back to its ageless name.
