Haunted


Owls often roost by day in this tangled palo verde tree in Yuma County, Arizona.
 


After Thanksgiving,
I visit places haunted
by the desert owls.

Celebrate

IMG_7608
Fading bougainvillea blossoms have been tossed on a trash heap in Wellton, Arizona.
 


Can I truly celebrate
When the brilliant blossoms fade?
Can this heart of mine rejoice
When such folly is displayed?
 
Yet even as they’re fading,
And although they cannot sing,
The blossoms clearly show me
Life on Earth’s a fragile thing.

Behind white curtains
the young lieutenant’s widow
salts her tea with tears.

Autumn colors blaze along the Animas River near Cedar Hill, San Juan County, New Mexico.
 


Autumn by autumn
the riverine cottonwoods
set themselves ablaze.

Colorful autumn leaves in California’s Inyo National Forest will soon be dashed to the ground by snow.
 


clear blue autumn sky—
great joy, albeit briefly,
before the first snow

drifts toward morning light.

Pond

What if I should see
my reflection in the pond?
Would I know myself?

In a spot of shade
I pause for sips of water—
summer’s long journey.
