Conversations

Version 2
Sunrise at a motel in Mojave, California.


Morning by morning
the wrens and roses converse
in an unknown tongue.

Desert Abundance

Version 2
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.


In a desert place
a twisted, broken willow
murmurs to the stars.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~

 


The desert’s abundance may not be in fruit,
But rather in clouds or in owls that can hoot,
 
Or maybe in rattlers that slither and slide,
Or in the great thermals on which the hawks glide.
 
The stones are abundant, and so is the sand
Wherever you look in a dry, barren land.
 
It’s not as though nothing filled up the spaces
In the world’s wild and desolate places!

Autumn afternoon—
on the mountain’s shadow side
a mocking crow hides.

Pathways

Ten thousand pathways
winding through the wilderness—
which one should I take?

Tools

Gardening tools at Micke Grove Regional Park, Lodi, California.
 


The gardener’s tools
wait without knowing they wait
to be used again.

Greening

Version 2
An ocotillo sports new green leaves after recent monsoons in the Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County, Southern Arizona.
 


In the midday heat
a greening ocotillo
offers little shade.

Fly

Mountains dominate portions of the Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona.
 


What if the mountain
were to fly south without you,
blackbird on the wing?

Broken

A dead saguaro cactus, Sonoran Desert, Maricopa County, Southern Arizona.
 


Broken saguaro,
how long will you keep standing
before I break too?

Is this the sunrise
for which I have been waiting?
Blackbird, find your voice!

How

Version 2
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


How many mountains
does it take to keep a cloud
from falling to earth?
