Riddles

Low-lying woodland near Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
 
my little green lawn
dreams about the pampas grass
I dream of the stars*


even woodland water pools
are filled with sacred riddles

Three Sparks

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.

Dreaming of the One

This week’s words are: chance, nest, secret, clever, swept, ripe, blinked, stars, basket, flesh, saw, hand
 


 
~~ 1 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who stole my seven ripe plums,
while I blinked back tears.
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
I dream of the one
whose basket was filled with stars,
harvested by hand.
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who thought himself so clever
that he swept my heart.
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who saw my naked flesh, yet
did not turn away.
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
I dream of the one
I met by chance one evening
in a secret place.
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who helped the wren pad her nest
before the storm struck.

desert dervishes
whirling in shadowy realms—
how a dream shapes them
