Graces

Bugambilia
Bugambilia (bougainvillea), Los Algodones, Baja California Norte, México
 


If you have no star,
then wish upon a petal—
scarecrows understand,
for underneath their straw hats
they grow the seasons’ graces.

not even wayward children
picking up stray shells

crystal clear sunlight
reflects all colors in the mirror—
shadow of a dragon


huddling in a seaside cave
Jonah hides himself from God

summer evening
a breeze turns leaves over
abandoned book


fishing among the shadows
she hopes to catch a fresh word

Sometimes letters come,
drenched in salt spray from the sea—
the same old stories.

Catch

great expectations
entangled in fishing line
I catch the sunrise


with sun-warmed stones as trinkets
I carry the light back home
