after my walk:
a perfect spider web
stuck to my glasses


how magical the world looks
through a thousand silken strands

Graces

Bugambilia
Bugambilia (bougainvillea), Los Algodones, Baja California Norte, México
 


If you have no star,
then wish upon a petal—
scarecrows understand,
for underneath their straw hats
they grow the seasons’ graces.
