Is this the sunrise
for which I have been waiting?
Blackbird, find your voice!

Summer sunrise in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Early in the month
a door in heaven opens,
letting light spill out.

Spring sunrise, Yuma County, Arizona
 


scanning the wasteland
to catch a glimpse of sunrise—
first one dove, then two

a dove rises from her nest
and flees toward the sun.

Raucous crow, enough!
Disturb the peace no longer,
screeching at your mate!

to sing a new song.

No respect

Just before an August sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Have you no respect,
crow on the distant mountain,
for the rising sun?

Walt Whitman Would Have Loved It

DSC_0189 (1)
August sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  


Walt Whitman would have loved it,
The song I heard at dawn,
A part of the great chorus
That seamlessly goes on:
 
The singing of a nation
In voices great and small—
Workers in the factories,
And horses in the stall;
 
Stones in parched and lonely lands,
A bird upon the wing—
When the blazing sun comes up
All things begin to sing.

Matins

wilderness matins—
a new song spills from your beak,
little desert dove
