The chapel at Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona can be seen through a wrought-iron fence.
 


Blazing midday sun—
the chapel bells are silent,
but one wren still sings.

Sunrise to sunset
we hear your song, Corn Mother,
sweeter than ripe plums.

Sky

The sky is bold and beautiful in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona .

 


Languid afternoon—
with my fingertips I trace
the clouds on your face.

Blue Monday: Abandoned Motel

DSC_0452
Graffiti defaces an abandoned motel north of Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Graffiti mars the old hotel,
It’s feeling rather blue.
Is there some way to cheer it up?
I don’t know, do you?

deepening autumn—
the longing of broken things
to be whole again

Crossing the footbridge,
I find a desert garden,
but no gardener.

To all wounded things
blackbird sings a healing song—
new growth soon appears.

Early in the month
a door in heaven opens,
letting light spill out.

Yavapai County, Arizona
 

Under ice-blue skies,
the scrub-oak-shrouded mountains
keep time with the moon.
