Mercado San Juan, Morelia, Michoacán, México

Looking for a basket,
I found one just for me,
A little white and blue one
As pretty as could be.
But when I went to buy it,
Someone called my name,
So I left the marketplace
As empty as I came.

From the mercado
she carries in her basket
daily bread and light.

Three Sparks

Sunday2 photo Sunday2_zps83efc41c.jpg

Dying spark of hope—
melancholy settles in,
nibbling at my soul.
~~ ~~ ~~
So many stories
begin with a spark of grief—
Tolstoy understands.
~~ ~~ ~~
I dream of the one
whose basket is filled with sparks
gathered from the hearth.
