Labyrinth

IMG_0610
Shadowy vegetation surrounds a labyrinth in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


Deep in thought I walk
round and round the gravel path,
ignoring the sky.

Passing

Right after Christmas
bright sunrise marks the passing
of a tattered year.

Sunset

A December sunset dances through the sky of the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


As they cook supper,
no one in the homeless camp
admires the sunset.

Awakening

When spring comes again, brilliant blossoms will open at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


I dream of blossoms
awakening in springtime—
now a chill wind blows.

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.

Among the aspens
a whispering of voices—
I am not alone.

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
