A padlock helps to keep tools safe in a shed at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 
 


Wind, relentless wind!
I’m rattled by the padlock
swinging to and fro.

I choose a new path
before the wind can erase
yesterday’s footprints.

A blush spreads across the sky at day’s end in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


In this lonely place,
where will you rest for the night,
weary little dove?

Tangled

An orange tree stands in need of pruning in a Phoenix, Arizona backyard.
 


Through tangled branches,
who can see the waxing moon,
even at midnight?

Locked

The doors are locked on this chapel in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico.
 


No one comes to pray
at the little stone chapel,
but a blackbird sings.

Blazing

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.

Scream

IMG_8025
An almost cloudless day makes it easy for raptors to hunt in California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
 


A few passing clouds
can’t mute a hawk’s piercing scream—
the field mice tremble.

with a dozen friends.

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