Weight

A gravesite memorial seems ready to fall at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 


among the tombstones
one leaning memorial—
the weight of winter

Entrance to Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Crossing the footbridge,
I find a desert garden,
but no gardener.

Wind

Wilderness way
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


In the wilderness
wind keeps erasing the path
I plan to follow.

Conversations

Version 2
Sunrise at a motel in Mojave, California.


Morning by morning
the wrens and roses converse
in an unknown tongue.

Song

Version 2
Sunrise in Yuma County, Arizona.


Deepening autumn—
a lone dove greets the morning
with a plaintive song.

Desert Abundance

Version 2
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.


In a desert place
a twisted, broken willow
murmurs to the stars.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~

 


The desert’s abundance may not be in fruit,
But rather in clouds or in owls that can hoot,
 
Or maybe in rattlers that slither and slide,
Or in the great thermals on which the hawks glide.
 
The stones are abundant, and so is the sand
Wherever you look in a dry, barren land.
 
It’s not as though nothing filled up the spaces
In the world’s wild and desolate places!

Autumn afternoon—
on the mountain’s shadow side
a mocking crow hides.

A wounded cactus begins to heal in a Phoenix, Arizona backyard.
 


To all wounded things
blackbird sings a healing song—
new growth soon appears.

a wise and gentle woman
learns the songs of birds.
