Version 2
A path leads to distant mountains in California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
 


Hearing a blackbird
sing on the misty mountain,
I follow its voice.

Longing

Version 2
Amid the sparse vegetation of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California, a lone tree stands out.
 


Triple-digit day—
a tree in the wilderness
longs for winter’s rains.

A blush spreads across the sky at day’s end in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


In this lonely place,
where will you rest for the night,
weary little dove?

Scream

IMG_8025
An almost cloudless day makes it easy for raptors to hunt in California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
 


A few passing clouds
can’t mute a hawk’s piercing scream—
the field mice tremble.

Blue Monday: Rainbow

FullSizeRender (1)
A rainbow brightens part of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 
 

Even a rainbow brighter than bright
Can never begin to outshine the night;
But hang it high in a desert place
And watch the barrenness glow with grace!
