At the journey’s end
one more weary soul takes flight—
autumn turns to ash.

Keening

three sighs to sundown
and the full pink moon’s blooming—
cemetery blues
the keening of doves at dusk
and on the cusp of morning

Three Virtues

Cemetery Mary photo IMG_5934Guadalupe_zps8ae0113d.jpg
Wellton Memorial Cemetery, Wellton, Arizona
 


To submit one’s hope
to her who bore the Baby
is not a lost cause.
 
She will instruct you
in the tangled ways of love—
you have naught to fear.
 
Finding faith renewed
is the highlight of her way—
every pilgrim knows.
