Four Haiku

at the water’s edge
the saved wait to be baptized—
old-time religion
shadows by the bridge
sculpted from hollowed-out light—
great blue heron’s cry
feet follow cinders
leading to the temple gate
a place of great grace
fingers framed by light
clutching an old rosary
carved of human bone

Remains of a hapless sheep, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
tickling ivories
scintillating music sound
filling the inner soul*

a lamb’s weathered shoulder bone
embracing the wind and sand
