Forage

Version 2
Prickly poppies, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Who’s the inventor that dreamed up this plant?
Its prickles and stems play host to the ant;
Honeybees forage for midmorning sweets
Deep in the blossoms where they find rich treats.

Shadow, bloom, and thorn—
how complicated the soul
of the wilderness!

Fading

IMG_7608
Fading bougainvillea blossoms on a trash heap, Wellton, Arizona
 


What is there to celebrate
When the brilliant blossoms fade?
Who rejoices at such loss?
Are not tender souls dismayed?
 
And yet in fading flowers
We see clearly what we are:
Blooms that shrivel at day’s end,
Leaving nothing near or far.
