at the river’s edge
how content the cottonwood
to gather shadows

Does not the pilgrim
simply trust the open path,
though the way is long?

Seven Circles

Sacred Heart Church, Farmington, New Mexico
 


 
~~ 1 ~~
 
golden the glowing
driving darkness from my door
holy the circle
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
on a mountain ridge
drawing a simple circle
she protects herself
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
one fragile bubble
burning in circles of light—
there will be weeping
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
a circle of stones
rare as forgotten language
beckoning me near
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
in the next canyon,
a spacious place for camping—
cottonwood circle
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
black cat dips one paw
into circles of sunshine
on the kitchen floor
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
The sunflower ants,
dizzy with nectar, stagger
in circles of light.
