Relentless, forceful, surging- goes the prelude
When I listen to the sounds
Of the Premier Western river, as it hastens ever seaward
On its annual cleansing rounds.
It has a duty, never ending
As it drives on to the sea,
To disperse the excess baggage
Which Living Things have caused to be.
How it sings about its’ seasons
As it goes about its’ chores-
First a whisper, then a babble,
Then a splashing along its’ shores.
Soon it’s surging, then it’s roaring-
As it widens in its' prime-
Giving life to myriad creatures,
And a setting for a rhyme.
How it fits into the psyche
Of the artist on its’ bank-
Annual Rhythm, cleansing Ritual,
Life Renewal, Canyons dank.
But its’ Song is more possessing
For the Spirit of mankind
As it stimulates the Vital-
At the center of our mind.
No! The very Core of our existence
Which is very rarely struck,
Is soon singing with the River,
As our heartstrings get a pluck.
Finally, there’s a crashing- yea, Crescendo,
As the cataracts soon give way
To the Bedrock of the lake beds, where
Serenity (and Life) manifests a final say.

The ASTEROID Ceres has an Inclination angle of 44.19 degrees, and this may acccount for the angle of the DIVIDER. This is the largest of the ASTEROIDS, and is closer than Pluto, so is more likely to SLICE the canyon. This largest of all Land Canyons on Earth somehow seems DOWNGRADED by a MERE Asteroid! I'll analyze further!
We need INPUT from the Sand Hollow E-W Canyons in order to reinforce the TENTATIVE CONCLUSIONS:
