Autumn by autumn
a blaze along the river
outshines every sun.

In an old photo
restless leaves are still turning
into little suns.

River

Animas River, Aztec, New Mexico
 


midsummer morning
the river unraveling
on its seaward way
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Rampant grow the tales
whispered by the willow trees
at the river’s edge.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
echoes of a crow
still menacing the river
ninety yards downstream

not the slightest breeze riffling
the cottonwood leaves
