Moment

A tree with no leaves stands at the edge of Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona.
 


At any moment
a dove may settle to rest
in the leafless tree.

Changes

On a wintry day in the Sonoran Desert, storm clouds form in the east.
 


Winter afternoon—
one dove falling from the clouds
changes everything.

Blue Monday: Abandoned Motel

DSC_0452
Graffiti defaces an abandoned motel north of Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Graffiti mars the old hotel,
It’s feeling rather blue.
Is there some way to cheer it up?
I don’t know, do you?
 
~~ ## ~~
 
deepening autumn—
the longing of broken things
to be whole again

Awakening

When spring comes again, brilliant blossoms will open at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


I dream of blossoms
awakening in springtime—
now a chill wind blows.

Watching

Snow will probably never fall on this Phoenix, Arizona yard.
 


Watching for winter—
how great my disappointment
when I see no snow!

Authenticity

Colorful aspen trees brighten a hillside in California’s Inyo National Forest.
 


Authenticity:
the aspens do not pretend
to be oaks or pines.

Among the aspens
a whispering of voices—
I am not alone.

Evening storm clouds may bring moisture to arid lands near Grants, New Mexico.
 


Autumn afternoon—
clouds drifting from the mountains
seem to promise rain.

I take the shadowy path
without companions.

From the marketplace
she carries in her basket
daily bread—and light!
