Cloudless

A clear blue sky and some gnarled branches welcome visitors to the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


Cloudless April day—
I walk in desolation,
consoled by birdsong.

Temptation


I’m tempted to eat tons of sweets.
I dearly love sugary treats.
I think they taste yummy
When they hit my tummy—
Let’s hear it for lots of sweetmeats!
 
 
My temptress is coffee, you bet.
To caffeine I’m deeply in debt.
It keeps me awake,
So for caffeine’s sake,
I won’t kick my habit just yet.
 
 
Do not lead me into temptation!
I want to avoid the sensation
Of falling from grace
And losing my face—
From sinning I need a vacation!

Blue Monday: Pickup

Plywood art adorns a wall in Ajo, Arizona.
 


A pickup that’s painted sky blue
Can carry a small sort of zoo:
Let’s start with six hogs,
Ten cats, and twelve dogs—
I’m sure that’s a full load, aren’t you?

Will you find nectar
beyond the mountain’s shadow,
desert butterfly?

Writing Poetry


A poet who couldn’t not write
Wrote verses by day and by night.
When asked why she did,
She said, “Look here, kid,
It keeps me from croaking, all right?”
 
 
I write mostly tiny haiku.
I find it delightful, I do,
To write short and sweet,
Not unlike a tweet—
Here, let me create one for you!
