rivers of nectar
flowing from two fragile hearts—
rare desert sweetness

or some rare desert torrent?
Impossible task!

Burning

Photobucket
 

impossible flame—
lone weed afire at sundown
soon falling to ash

 
Another take on this photo and the Poetic Bloomings and Sunday Scribblings prompts:
 

Moses heard the call
at the burning bush, rose up
and led God’s people.

Rare the fall mornings
that no rivers of frost flow
through the wilderness.

Crushed

An hour of hard frost
crushes dry riverbed corn—
stem and leaf and cell.

A fence’s language—
twisted wit, flair for riddles—
who can understand?

Words are all we have,
yet lacking tongue or language
Sun Lass flaunts her flare.
