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

Buddha

November sunset, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 
the Buddha himself
did not start enlightened
he walked the path*


stumbling through the dark valleys
welcoming glimpses of light
