folded by strong winds
creased again by driving rains—
origami cups

Mask

Mask at Anado's
 
Mask on outside wall, home of artist Anado McLauchlin, La Cieneguita, Guanajuato, México
 


a frisson of fear—
remembering the fierce mask
on her neighbor’s wall

birth of a new day—
songs emerging from each leaf
celebrate the light

Causeway

Causeway at El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


Walking the causeway,
silence carries me along,
silence and birdsong.

Empty

Mercado
Mercado San Juan, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 


Looking for a basket,
I found one just for me,
A little white and blue one
As pretty as could be.
But when I went to buy it,
Someone called my name,
So I left the marketplace
As empty as I came.

Bits

Fragment of a broken pot, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


scattered in the sand
bits of broken pottery
that no one can mend

Voices

Puebla, México
 


a flowing fountain—
somewhere the liquid voices
of children singing

Strands

Razor wire
A forbidding fence, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 


Slicing through the blue,
strands of concertina wire
keep all thieves at bay.

Signs

Signs that tell a tale
refresh the pilgrim’s footsteps
on her long journey.

Debris

An early morning sweeper, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


outside the courtyard
sweeping up party debris
for the thousandth time
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
conquering debris
after the midnight party
one swish at a time
