DSC_0282
In the little mountain town of Dolores, Colorado you can visit the Yoga House. (Well, if it were an essential business and currently open, you could!) One photo, two memes.
 
  
A long loneliness
settles on the village streets—
coronavirus.

Welcome

Early morning light brightens a cluster or organ pipe cacti and an ocotillo just starting to bloom at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 


Welcome, Sister Sun!
I have been waiting for you
through the long, cold night.

Question


Last day of winter—
a question asked and answered
lingers on my tongue.

Fading

The winter sun sets over Yuma County, Arizona.
 


Day fades into dusk—
a dove returns to her nest,
singing one last song.

Squabbling

Sunrise comes to a little southern Arizona town on a crisp winter’s day.
 


Ignoring sunrise,
birds at the backyard feeder
squabble over seeds.

Labyrinth

Shadowy vegetation surrounds a labyrinth in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


Deep in thought I walk
round and round the gravel path,
ignoring the sky.

A grapefruit clings to its tree at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Even in darkness,
touch the ripening grapefruit,
for it is holy.

Passing

The sky lights up over Wellton, Arizona on a late December morning.
 


Right after Christmas
bright sunrise marks the passing
of a tattered year.

Sunset

A December sunset dances through the sky of the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
 


As they cook supper,
no one in the homeless camp
admires the sunset.

Moment

A tree with no leaves stands at the edge of Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona.
 


At any moment
a dove may settle to rest
in the leafless tree.
