Breath

Shadows lengthen at day’s end, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  


Wilderness evening—
the dying breath of a dove
settles in the dust.

Winter afternoon—
so distant are the mountains
I cannot see them.

lodging in the dust

A winter day, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Winter afternoon—
a dove leaves its mournful song
on a frozen branch.

now rusts in the sand

Where there is nothing,
sooner or later something
surely must appear.

Brittlebush blossoms in December, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  

as winter deepens
the first bright blossoms appear—
wilderness glory
