Two arches – one bound to Mother Earth, the other sweeping across the night sky.
Two wonders – one shaped by the earthly forces of wind and rain over millennia,
the other our galaxy, a speck in the vast, mysterious universe.
Lying on the desert floor at night, hands behind head,
gazing into the immensity of space
our thoughts turn away from every day things which fade into trivialities
as we are lost in the grandeur and enigma of the great beyond
