Watching

Snow will probably never fall on this Phoenix, Arizona yard.
 


Watching for winter—
how great my disappointment
when I see no snow!

Authenticity

Colorful aspen trees brighten a hillside in California’s Inyo National Forest.
 


Authenticity:
the aspens do not pretend
to be oaks or pines.

a whispering of voices—
I am not alone.

Autumn afternoon—
I take the shadowy path
without companions.

From the marketplace
she carries in her basket
daily bread—and light!

Autumn ‘Firsts’


Throughout the woodlands
dry cedars snap like matchsticks—
first loss of autumn.
 
Fear gripping his heart,
a wayfarer hurries on—
first clouds of autumn.
 
Autumn’s first full moon—
I catch glimpses of fairies
dancing in the moss.
 
On the garden path
I keep stumbling on pebbles—
autumn’s first thick mist.
 
In the dwindling light,
what is there to sing about?
First rain of autumn…
 
seeming far away
my childhood and its wonders—
autumn’s first cold snap

Cry

Autumn sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


With a cry of joy
a dove rises from her nest
and wings toward the sun.

Balm

The Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona seems to offer little to anyone passing through.
 


In this barren land
will I find the balm I seek
to ease my longing?

blotted out by the full moon—

Witness

August sunrise in Yuma County, Arizona.
 


If a blackbird falls
atop the distant mountain,
who will bear witness?
