Silence

Version 2
A bright, clear day in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


in a barren place
one lizard’s flickering tongue
disturbs the silence

Blue’s Truth

DSC_0963
A bright blue sky accentuates an agave in bloom, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


Nothing’s truer than the blue of a desert sky,
Though I have to say to you I’m not certain why.
 
Blue’s truth is firmly rooted where no eye can see,
In a place beyond the sky called eternity.

Afternoon

Brilliant winter day, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


A few passing clouds
muffle a hawk’s piercing scream—
winter afternoon.

Winter afternoon—
the mournful song of a dove
stains the barren hills.

in the wilderness
a hundred thousand voices
cactus is but one

What

Version 2
Winter storm clouds gather near Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


What word, little bird,
lures the thunderstorm closer
to the parched mountain?
