Wilderness Fairy

Husk

Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Once in a blue moon
fairies in the wilderness
show themselves as husks.

Blooms in Thrall

Vacant lot
 
A vacant lot, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


Bright blue summer sky
holding fragile blooms in thrall—
crickets quake with fear.

Sunset Landscape

Take 1
 

flocks of sundown clouds
pretending to be raindrops
clinging to a fence

Three Takes on ‘Raindrops’

Take 1
 


This is a country
raindrops will never dampen—
hearts of dust and stone.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
Raindrops keep falling
everywhere but on these stones—
the gods are laughing.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
Small raindrops tremble—
somewhere far away from stones
mighty oceans roar.

Are There No Raindrops?

Take 3
 

Are there no raindrops
to soothe this tortured landscape
or my trembling heart?
