last days of summer
settling in an earthen bowl
for an ursine nap—
about the dreams to follow
not even stars know the time

Road

honeysuckle scent
perfuming the ancient road
that leads to the hills
 
on a rocky road
women with delicate feet
walking with their gods
 
fresh winds from the west
erasing every footprint
from the pilgrim way
