Their children left blue roses
On their dusty grave
As a sign of gratitude
For the love they gave.

picking up stray shells

Someone left a stone at Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona. (Read why people leave stones at Roxaboxen.)

gravel speaks in tongues

November sunset, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 

Fleeing their homeland,
a mother and three children
move from star to star—
four hundred yards from freedom,
barbed fencing crushes their dream.

then wish upon a petal—
wee ones know it works.
