We spent many sunrises and sunsets at the base of these mountains. This beach had the darkest sand I have ever seen. The winds roared over the mountain tops down onto where we stood. The lines in the sand mesmerized as the waves crashed on the rocks. 

This is still one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen.

I never imagined that I would brave the crowds to explore Antelope Canyon, but the option of adventuring into the canyon on my SUP was definitely something that interested me. 

It was pretty incredible winding through the canyon, landing on this beach and walking the canyon while being almost completely alone.

Onyx Seas

You dipped your poisonous tongue
into the tumultuous sea
and spoke works of venom
from a cauldron of anger
when you lost control
Those soulless fingers
played the musical keys of sadness
aimless amongst the magnificent
as the eyes warned
dangerous curves ahead
but caution was never heeded
and your lips saturated the flowers
along the banks of the incessant river
overflowing into the the home of the Saint. 

Tell Me

Tell me
you're losing it all too. 
Into the dark
we venture hand in hand
Let's fade back inside
back inside you. 
Tell me
you're losing it all too. 
What went wrong
in the cacophony of the madness
I nearly lost you.  
Follow the footsteps
firing at the ground in a frenzied fury
through a thousand heartbeats
let them land
between your lips
and I want you
Tell me
you're losing it all too.
