Forage

Version 2
Prickly poppies, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Who’s the inventor that dreamed up this plant?
Its prickles and stems play host to the ant;
Honeybees forage for midmorning sweets
Deep in the blossoms where they find rich treats.

Song

Late winter sunset, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Wilderness evening—
a dove returns to her nest,
cooing one last song.

Blue Monday: Tangles

DSC_0347 (1)
Tangled branches of a fallen palo verde tree, Yuma County, Arizona
  


Beyond the tangles, a patch of blue
Catches my eye and gives me a clue
About life’s tangles and how long they’ll last:
In the blink of an eye, they will be past.

Blue Monday: Tree Hugger

Student artwork at a Yuma County, Arizona high school
  


A tree-hugging bird is a sight
That you can see only in light,
For like you and me
The bird in the tree
Finds comfort in sleeping at night.

First

Indigo bush on a winter afternoon, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Full moon or blackbird—
which will be the first to come
and chasten winter?
