"The Winged Rock - Tsé Bit'A'í" Shiprock by Trekki

Shiprock Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos

Pines and cholla
grow through this dark
stone ocean. Navajos say
it is a great pool
of dried blood
from a dangerous giant
beheaded by Twin Brothers.
The black rock draws
sun into its blood,
lava heaving for miles,
cholla and pines
feeding on that old feud.
& off in the rippling distance
how cool those shoulders
that have forgotten
in the snow.
