Way

Walkway, Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona


Adjei Agyei-Baah’s haiku about a beggar inspires me to write a new haiku about the people we would prefer not to see:

 

roadside walk—
a beggar stretches leg
as hand

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


shadowy walkway—
the beggar no one can see
stretching out his hand

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 

Sometimes the way leads through shadows.

Tangled desert tree,
were you once a silver birch
in some misty place?

Webs

Day's end glow
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Webs of golden light
stretch across the desert sands—
shadows are their prey.

A new fence needed?
Not as long as the old one
still stands with resolve.

He gives snow like wool; he scatters hoarfrost like ashes. He casts forth his ice like morsels; who can stand before his cold?
 
Psalm 147:16-17, Revised Standard Version
 

These icy morsels
will not quell my hunger pangs—
Spirit, feed my heart!

Come and see what God has done: he is terrible in his deeds among men. He turned the sea into dry land; men passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him…

Spirit, turn the seas
and rivers into dry land,
so we may pass through.
