Desert Abundance

Version 2
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.


In a desert place
a twisted, broken willow
murmurs to the stars.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~

 


The desert’s abundance may not be in fruit,
But rather in clouds or in owls that can hoot,
 
Or maybe in rattlers that slither and slide,
Or in the great thermals on which the hawks glide.
 
The stones are abundant, and so is the sand
Wherever you look in a dry, barren land.
 
It’s not as though nothing filled up the spaces
In the world’s wild and desolate places!

Autumn afternoon—
on the mountain’s shadow side
a mocking crow hides.

Blue Monday: No Geese in the Sky

There aren’t any geese in the sky,
There’s only a cloud flying by—
A beautiful day
To work or to play
Or maybe to get some shuteye!

Blue Monday: Wild and Lonely Place

In a wild and lonely place
Hikers may come face to face
With beasts hungry, gaunt, and weak—
At that point it’s best to shriek!

Mist

Version 2
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


Mist on the mountain—
a blackbird seeking its nest
starts to go astray.

How

How many mountains
does it take to keep a cloud
from falling to earth?
