Playing her part

 photo takingflight_zps32fdd08a.jpg
Sunset, Puerto Nuevo, Baja California Norte, México
 


She quiets her mind and opens her arms,
Embracing the ocean and stars;
Even the planets draw near as she breathes
And blesses both Venus and Mars.
 
Yoga sustains her day in and day out,
A peace settles over her soul;
She’s playing her part, although it is small,
Her part in the glorious whole.

Chilling

Saguaro cactus on the outskirts of Ajo, Arizona
  


A cactus alone on a hill,
When winter came, took a great chill;
It sneezed and it snoozed,
It freezed and it froozed,
That cactus alone on a hill.

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 

A lone saguaro
pierces the clouds at sundown
with its deadly spines.

At the sunset bell,
not another word from you,
trembling little dove!
