Seven Circles

~~ 1 ~~
 
golden the glowing
driving darkness from my door
holy the circle
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
on a mountain ridge
drawing a simple circle
she protects herself
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
one fragile bubble
burning in circles of light—
there will be weeping
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
a circle of stones
rare as forgotten language
beckoning me near
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
in the next canyon,
a spacious place for camping—
cottonwood circle
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
black cat dips one paw
into circles of sunshine
on the kitchen floor
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
The sunflower ants,
dizzy with nectar, stagger
in circles of light.
