Sometimes paradise
comes peeking through the cattails
on a sunny day.

In time for the moon
to make its dazzling debut,
the sun slips away.

for one more wave of darkness
to veil their antics

blinks in wonder this morning—
no more bush clover

Helpful

Someone remembers photo YPClargegrave_zpsfd564348.jpg
Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona
 


in a desert land
dust whirling round the tombstones
morning, noon and night—
how helpful to remember
the same end awaits us all

Prey

Remembering

River stone, Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona
 


in a desert land
stones from rivers far away
muttering dark tales
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
fingering these stones
remembering the builders
and the destroyers

clutched in a child’s hand
