Pacific Ocean yards away from the U.S.-Mexico Border, Border Field State Park, Southern California
 


Where are the children?
Why does the sea seem to weep
this summer morning?

Imagine

IMG_8554
A pathway in suburban Riverside County, California.
 


A path of mere human invention
May somehow defy all convention.
Imagine the creechas,
Mice, spydas, and leeches,
That follow the path with intention!

Silence

Version 2
A bright, clear day in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


in a barren place
one lizard’s flickering tongue
disturbs the silence

Blue’s Truth

DSC_0963
A bright blue sky accentuates an agave in bloom, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


Nothing’s truer than the blue of a desert sky,
Though I have to say to you I’m not certain why.
 
Blue’s truth is firmly rooted where no eye can see,
In a place beyond the sky called eternity.

Shadows

Afternoon

Brilliant winter day, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


A few passing clouds
muffle a hawk’s piercing scream—
winter afternoon.

Stain

Winter afternoon—
the mournful song of a dove
stains the barren hills.
