How many badgers are wise enough to thrive on city streets?
Can things that hum and swarm in the forest live without tasting blood?
Are there passions storming the heart’s dark corners that no one dares mention?
It is enough, child, to believe in the magic of unicorns.
It is enough, old man, to walk through the desert at night, singing to the stars.
How will the bat that hangs in the belfry elude the tolling bell?
How will the creature with no legs jump to safety when the owl drops from the sky?
How can Jesus calm the surging sea with words when he has no tongue?
It is enough, child, while I am with you, to keep hunting the elusive unicorn.
It is enough, old man, to sing every night to the stars.
Blossoms fallen from an Indigo Bush, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
some fallen blossoms
littering the desert sands—
that is all there is
One of many ancient ruins at Wupatki National Monument, Northern Arizona
stumbling over stones
left so many springs ago
no one knows the tale
Indian Paintbrush, Navajo National Monument, Northern Arizona
Insect on a yucca plant, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas
the way to wisdom
fraught with danger and distress
yet she presses on
~~ ~~ ~~
Even in this heat
the honorable justice
dons his heavy robe.
~~ ~~ ~~
scribbled in a book—
all her nocturnal ramblings
since she was thirteen
