The Ancient Modern

Opened /  Joshua Alan Sturgill     

The door behind the waterfall
The ivy-veiled entrance to the cave

The unexpected canyon opened in the desert floor
house of hidden springs.

They ask, “who comes?”
when I knock on the door

No one is blinded by the desert heat
No one is drenched in the thunder of the falls

No one,” I answer.
Then enter,” they reply
