afternoon shadows
I love them too much to think
the moon will melt them

Barbed

November sunset, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 

Fleeing their homeland,
a mother and three children
move from star to star—
four hundred yards from freedom,
barbed fencing crushes their dream.

Beacon

Old Point Loma Lighthouse, Cabrillo National Monument, San Diego, California
 
old beacon
hailing all strangers ~
mind the land*


three come sailing in at dusk
spirit, mystery, and flesh

Strawhead’s Eyes

National Botanic Gardens
Scarecrow in the organic garden, National Botanic Gardens, Dublin, Ireland
 
 
wind jostles the scarecrow
near the heavy-hung cornstalks
the summer is spent*


three crows that followed Jesus
have pecked out old strawhead’s eyes

The old cat Evening
curls under a barbed-wire fence
for a little snooze.

Absent

One thin strand

Discarded barbed wire, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


rusting barbed-wire strand
snaking through the wilderness—
an absent fence post

the myth that teaches
fences must be beautiful—
wrens dismiss the notes

Petal

If you have no star,
then wish upon a petal—
wee ones know it works.
