Felled

A fallen ironwood tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Like a great tree felled
you crashed to the earth broken
and forever stilled.

Blue Monday: Hoop

IMG_8636
A basketball hoop hangs from a garage, San Diego, California.
 


The basketball hoop stays forlorn
From evening until the next morn.
No kids come to play,
So it’s safe to say
Their absence is what we should mourn.

A Quintet of Silliness


In the tundra you’ll not find
A stand of trees of any kind.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
A hologram is just the thing
To make the holy angels sing.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Anyone who sings at dawn
Should just shut up and be gone!
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
No parking in the garden, no parking close to trees!
But if I cannot park there, then tell me where, O please!
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Touch my lips and touch my crown,
Pick me up and set me down.
Let this be your lifelong task—
Is this much too much to ask?

the lilies someone planted
have begun to bloom.

the dragonflies still whisper
in an unknown tongue.

Midsummer evening—
the city’s ancient houses
seem to be ablaze.
