November sunset, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


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

Failing

Beginning of dusk, November, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


finale
the failing daylight
then nightfall
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
fiery prelude
to dusk on distant mountains—
pilgrim presses on
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Sonoran Desert—
notorious for its light
rising and falling
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Singing toxic songs,
the lurking desert creatures
welcome one more dusk.

October evening—
the house of desolation
burning without fire

Weary of waiting
for the dragonfly’s return,
daylight slips away.

marking the way home

Settling

flight of the eagle
stepping into the world of dreams—
a silent cry


settling on the succulents
the hunter’s breath at sundown

eventide shadows
I love them too much to think
the sea will drown them
