Summers

too many summers
since her man took the night train—
plum scent in the wind

Stone

Someone left a stone at Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona. (Read why people leave stones at Roxaboxen.)
 


Left for passersby to see,
This wee stone delighted me.
When I saw its shade of blue,
I thought right away of you
And the way the summer skies
Show themselves in your bright eyes.

Pallet

Blue-painted edge of a pallet at a construction site, Southern Arizona
 


An old wooden pallet
With peeling blue paint—
A quirky attraction
For sinner and saint.

valley of secrets—
nothing can match the silence
of wasted places

a leaning memorial—
too many winters

gathering wisdom
from sky and lizard and stone—
agave blossoms

the distant mountains—
even with a walking stick
a three-days’ journey
