even the ocotillo
seems to sing for joy.

Nine Dreams

first dream of the year
mulberry tree near the gate
heavy with new fruit
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
white honeysuckle blossoms
perfuming my door
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
seven unanswered questions
under her pillow
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
asking the homeless woman
the way to my home
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
trying to follow the geese
through a field of stars
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
the pauper wakes up playing
a lute with no strings
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
in houses made of harvests
not one crust of bread
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
trampling the neighbor’s melons
in a fit of rage
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first dream of the year
pistachios from Iran
filling a blue bowl

Seeking shepherd’s purse
in lands of desolation—
fruitless is the task.
