“Bones” of a dead saguaro cactus, Maricopa County, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 
 


Seven tales of woe—
even the saguaro knows
at least one of them.

While the pears fatten,
a blackbird lingers nearby,
hoping for a treat.

When glimpsed through the pines,
how much longer the way seems—
pebble in my shoe.

a sunflower blooms

how can she ever forget
his empty left sleeve?

Glimpse

Sunrise in May, seen through the branches of a palo verde tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 
 


Through tangled branches
a glimpse of the homeward way
satisfies my heart.
