Ending

Long shadows at day’s end, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


As shadows lengthen,
ants snuggle down for the night,
their mother the sand.
~~ ~~ ~~
Shadows lengthen as the day ends.

its prodigal blooms
shying away from wastelands—
Chinese bellflower

uprooted agave still shines in beauty

finding peace beside the still waters

Stitching

in big sky country
hidden saguaro tailors
stitching light to air

In big cloud country I diminish.

Morning

Dawn, Gila Mtns.
Subtle early morning shadows steal across agricultural land, Yuma County, Arizona
 


on little mice feet
morning skitters through the field
too early for crows
~~ ~~ ~~


Can a mouse move without skittering?
