Cave Country

Out in the hills, a cave we found,
High on a hill, with views around
That covered many miles of land,
Had a floor composed of sand.
The ceiling was a sooty black,
From cooking fires and in back,
There was a pile of bones we knew
Came from birds and animals too.
No odor but the smell of smoke
And the atmosphere there spoke
Of Indian people passing through,
Who sheltered here, as travelers do.
We lingered there, absorbing all
The atmosphere and I recall,
A feeling of affinity
For what life in those times might be!
We merely sat awhile to share
The sense of history felt there
And going, only left about
Our footsteps, trailing in and out!

There is something very exciting about a cave and the story of the people and animals it may have sheltered.  You tell these stories so well.  Love, Joyce

Betty Lou,

I really enjoyed the imaginations that your experience in the seemingly obscure cave discovery inspired in you to write and share with us.

Thank you for sharing and God bless.

Hi Bob:  Thanks for reading. The cave i wrote about was in the high desert country of Nevada.  There were many caves scattered around in the high cliffs and some of them were burial caves, which we never disturbed in any way. Fascinating country on the edge of the Black Rock Desert.

Dear Betty Lou

Caves have a story of their own to tell and you relate this in your poetry so well!  It gave me goosebumps!  Wonderful versing!

Love Verbena xo

Dear Verbena:

Yes, you are right!  When you step inside a cave, you know it has history! Thanks for your comments.

Love
Betty Lou
