volcanic mountain—
wave upon wave of ashes
crashing into pines

hits the right notes

near the blue lagoon
a puzzle in the grasses—
receding footprints

Seeking

in time of trouble
seeking the soothing waters—
seven miles to go

Teatime

Blue door
San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


Behind the blue door
two friends sip tea together—
the tinkling of spoons.

Summers

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

Stone

 photo DSC_0002205_zpsudrxjknd.jpg
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
