monument valley

luminous dark blue monument valley
full moon night silhouettes
they galloped in deep red powered soil

the dust covers the mind window
with index finger i write peering through
letters whose words can never approach
even in the humblest bows her experience,

I still can not know how my
nine year old daughter held on
to her horse twenty years ago.
