Somewhere in San Miguel

Can someone tell me
a recipe for shadows
dark and rich and sweet?

My compass broken,
I follow the winding fence—
it will lead me home.

Follow the Fence

I need no compass
to lead me to journey’s end—

Lapping Up the Sun

Sunrise at the mud flats
 

Sunrise, Southern California
 


No sunrise birdsong—
only the sound of water
lapping up the sun.

Their Bliss Knows No End

Wayside Shrine
 
Wayside shrine, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


Their bliss knows no end,
Who worship the friend,
The lover of sinners and saints;
For Mary holds dear
All those who draw near,
And tolerates all their complaints.

Crickets Honor You


 


Crickets honor you,
mower that no longer zings,
scissoring the grass.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
Mowing days over,
farmer cultivates the joy
of resting from toil.
