Rattler whom I dread,
will you strike me as I walk
among the ruins?

Walk

A lone shoe would, if it could, walk to find its missing mate.
 


It is not yet dawn
and already the old shoe
clamors for a walk.

Lullaby

To the setting sun
a dove sings a lullaby
she has learned by heart.

Window

A surrealistic painting of a winter sky adds a dash of mystery to the wall of a home in Yuma, Arizona.
 


Wide-open window—
a magpie on the mountain
seems to know my name.

Even deadly thorns
cannot keep me from the way
that’s prepared for me.

Requiem

somewhere in the stones.

Fresh

When sunflowers bloom,
sparrows light up the garden
with fresh morning songs.

Light

Version 2
An earthenware jar sits on a stone ledge in Zapopan, Mexico.
 


Languid afternoon—
the light inside a clay jar
seeps to the surface.

Picnic

DSC_0266
Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Party-crashing ants
help themselves to chips and cake
at our picnic lunch.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
We fixed ourselves a picnic, we munched among the dead,
For it was in the graveyard that our feast was spread.
The ants came uninvited and helped themselves to cake;
Now we see that picnicking was a huge mistake!
