Sandstone Cliffs

     up there is the past,
near where we thought
   the future might be.

it is a long past,
      time so distant

we cannot imagine.

      time and weather
carve amazing shapes.

   sandstone records
so many years events
      (many millions)

      all written in the 
weathered stone.

dinosaurs lived there
      once under a time.

sandstone layers
      record it all.

a world we cannot
      quite imagine:

   an alien landscape.
creatures that cannot
      possibly exist

in a world like ours.
