reviving weary pilgrims—
honey on the way

Where are the children?
Why does the sea seem to weep
this summer morning?

Carcass

Version 2
The earth reclaims an old pickup near Dayton, Washington.
 


While one blackbird sings,
a pickup’s rusting carcass
slumps beside the road.

Cooing

a hidden dove starts cooing—
distant mountains quake

Through the wilderness
a family of dreamers
hastens hand in hand.

Fasting and praying,
she draws near the ancient ones—
they bid her to dance.

In secret places,
far from prying ears and eyes,
the unicorns graze.

Seven Circles

Sacred Heart Church, Farmington, New Mexico
 


 
~~ 1 ~~
 
golden the glowing
driving darkness from my door
holy the circle
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
on a mountain ridge
drawing a simple circle
she protects herself
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
one fragile bubble
burning in circles of light—
there will be weeping
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
a circle of stones
rare as forgotten language
beckoning me near
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
in the next canyon,
a spacious place for camping—
cottonwood circle
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
black cat dips one paw
into circles of sunshine
on the kitchen floor
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
The sunflower ants,
dizzy with nectar, stagger
in circles of light.
