Yampa River Flower

Colorado Firmament

In the grotto of the starship columbine

sprinkled amongst the crags and crevices,


rooted in the Morgan formation

between Round Valley sandstone


and the Weber sandstone,

the two-layered Morgan blends


where ledges slide into the young

meandering free-flowing Yampa.
