Dance

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

Unicorns

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

Seven Circles

~~ 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.

Brittlebush blossoms—
who can eclipse their beauty
by smudging the light?

licking at the hanging fruit
ripens into song

the undulating grasses
crying out for rain
