Buoyed by Grace

Tortured tree
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Imagine a tree
tortured, twisted and tattered
but buoyed by grace.

Imagine

Sonoran sunrise
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Imagine mountains
swimming in crimson rivers—
naked stars take flight.

Deadly Red

Deadly red
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


parched and barren sands
as far as my eyes can see—
deadly smudge of red

Who

In and out shadows

Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Who has seen the wind
snaking through the lizards’ home?
Who can track its scent?

Seven Crossroads

Photobucket
 
 


Start your odyssey!
Quit standing at the crossroads,
looking small and lost.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
She could not predict
how standing at the crossroads
would contort her life.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Why aren’t you singing
while standing at the crossroads?
Did you tie your tongue?
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
To give thanks to God
while standing at the crossroads
is a sign of faith.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
She sang her heart out
while standing at the crossroads,
and then she moved on.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Letting her flute sing
while standing at the crossroads—
mournful little tunes.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
We can make a life
of standing at the crossroads,
but it won’t go far.

Daybreak San Miguel

Empty Buildings

Abandoned & fence
 

Empty buildings, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


the dreams of childhood—
mice and lizards skittering
through empty buildings

Blue Banderas

Blue banderas
 
Banderas festoon a street, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


Anybody there
would know the blue banderas
fluttered tales of grace.

With My Eyes Obscured

Art, Fabrica la Aurora
 
Painting at Fábrica La Aurora San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


With my eyes obscured,
how can I see clearly now?
Blackbird calls my name.

Savaged Places

Vacant lot
 


Lush, fragrant gardens
spring up from savaged places
only in our dreams.
