outshines every sun.

Blue Monday: Flower

Blue flower: detail of a decorative wreath for sale in a New Mexico gift shop
 


Flower of cloth with petals of blue,
It never pains me to look at you.
 
The more I look, the better I feel.
My life must be on an even keel.

Crow in the pine tree,
will you ever stop mocking
what you can’t explain?

perhaps one cloud holds raindrops
for the thirsty dove

Untamed

In the distance, Tsé Bitʼaʼí, “Rock with Wings,” rises from the desert floor near Shiprock, New Mexico

a crow with an untamed tongue
mocks the passing clouds
