A stream in the mountains of Inyo National Forest near Bishop, California

Near a mountain stream
the shadows on some boulders
become black as crows.

Palo verde blossoms, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

~~ 1 ~~
First weekend of spring—
an outcry from a boulder
startles the blind man.
~~ 2 ~~
First weekend of spring—
by reading classics aloud,
she consoles herself.
~~ 3 ~~
first weekend of spring—
beach boys beating their sandals
to rid them of sand
~~ 4 ~~
First weekend of spring—
exhausted, though the surf pounds,
she sleeps on the shore.
~~ 5 ~~
First weekend of spring—
she tries to name the birdsong
that disturbs her sleep.
~~ 6 ~~
First weekend of spring—
a flame in the eastern sky
makes the blind man flinch.
