An ironwood tree at dusk, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Somewhere a skylark,
far from these wasted places,
trills a note of joy.

Failing

Beginning of dusk, November, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


finale
the failing daylight
then nightfall
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
fiery prelude
to dusk on distant mountains—
pilgrim presses on
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Sonoran Desert—
notorious for its light
rising and falling
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Singing toxic songs,
the lurking desert creatures
welcome one more dusk.

deepening silence—
a struggle to hear voices
muffled by the earth

sliding down the path
a single breath of twilight—
the night dance begins

Walking home at dusk—
perhaps along the fence line
a peony blooms.
