nothing short of a miracle

Ochres, those naturally occurring pigments from oxidized iron

are building blocks of the gods.

The variant reds and yellows of the mountain and desert canyons

rests our eyes and makes our hearts sing.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch

The shine on the oil slick includes the beautiful colors from

compressed biologicals

who lived and thrived in community with those same pigments.

Do you think those rascally gods care that humanity

loves their architecture and art so passionately?

Or that that same humanity could be so damned careless?

Here playing like he’s Zeus on red ochre rock, Garden of the Gods outside Colorado Springs, is my grandson Edan, May 2010.


Thank you to Nothing Hypothetical for this week’s One Single Impression prompt, ochre.
