Owl Creek Canyon

                                                 ... in the hall / my map of Owl Creek Canyon

             ... sooner or later

                                    ... we put our fears to rest

  1. My old brain makes an oblique reference to "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge", a short story by Ambrose Bierce that has never left me. I wonder if the same creek carved the canyon setting for your excellent poem. Sometimes, over the years, I have used maps to get its course, but it is a long creek and I never got its limits. Neither did Bierce.

    1. Bierce was certainly an interesting feller ... his death alone an intriguing mystery ... I concur all streams and rivers and creeks are one ... so in that big picture sense, yes ... the same. However, that might not satisfy the geologist and geographer... :)

      I read the story and also saw a disturbing short film based on it ... it has never left me, either ...
