Crickets Honor You


 


Crickets honor you,
mower that no longer zings,
scissoring the grass.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
Mowing days over,
farmer cultivates the joy
of resting from toil.

Sniffing for Light


 


Empty horse corral—
shadows drift across dry slats,
sniffing for fresh light.

Only for an Hour

Iris at Hubbell
 
As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
Psalm 103:15-16, King James Version
 

Only for an hour
blossoms tame or wild flower,
then they fade away.

Who Will Spring for One?

Navajo rugs
 


Stacks and stacks of rugs,
seven tourists gape in awe—
who will spring for one?

Elusive Music

The Bull Pen
 

The countertop doll
would dance with zest if she could—
elusive music.

Seeking Clarity

Hogan at Hubbell
 

Seeking clarity,
I welcome shadow dancers
and their tongues of light.

Sniffing Temptation

sniffing temptation—
whiffs of freedom in the air
just beyond the fence

On a Wooden Loom

Navajo loom

On a wooden loom
a weaver wove her kismet
thread by thread by thread.
