thermopolis, wyoming

No Rosetta Stone

In Wyoming 
honey color rock
softened and weathered
round and cracked,
in places has shattered loose
into a seam of dark umber.
Rock tools chip through
to the honey and
petroglyphs dance across the rock face 
as lively as a child's drawing;
animals, people, spirits  mingle.
We look for the code,
trying to read the pictures,
stepping carefully,
watching for snakes.
