Day 567 Grandfather Rock

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today we drove to Sun Lakes State Park by Dry Falls, WA and enjoyed the ancient rock coulee cliffs surrounding us. As we left Perch Lake, this beautiful rock formation appeared, like an ancient Kon Tiki sculpture and I immediately envisioned Chief Joseph appearing to remember the stories of his people. I remember an elder saying the oldest people were the rock people: Grandfather Rock.

Can you see the face in the rock?

When we returned home I found a CC0 image of Chief Joseph on Flickr Commons and applied the image to the rock face in honor of the vision I saw and remembered the stories and the chiefs:

Grandfather Rock

Visions and stories 

in the oldest people: rocks; 

observe their power— 

see the elders in the sheen; 

hear the stories in the cracks—

remember, retell, honor.
