Keeper of the Door

Virgin of the Household
Virgin guarding a doorway, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Psalm 84:10, King James Version
 


Keeper of the door,
never sleeping day or night,
bless all those within.

Searching

Dawn
Daybreak, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


In silence the sun
sniffs at an old saguaro,
searching for a song.

you bow your head to hoarfrost,
yet you keep your crown.

Who

In and out shadows

Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


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