Dreams that Call


Do you hear the dreams that call,
Dreams your hands still hope to find?
Stand in wonder of them all,
Pillow them within your mind.
In the shell of your old life
You could stand until you die,
But it’s time to slip away
With the hawk that rides the sky.
Onward through the wind and fire!
Push yourself, do not give up!
You will find your heart’s desire
Waiting in a brimming cup.

Afternoon

Brilliant winter day, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


A few passing clouds
muffle a hawk’s piercing scream—
winter afternoon.

lengthening shadows—
the screech of a hungry hawk
sends mice skittering

stone on the distant mountain—
both beyond my reach

morning shimmer
dew frosting on furze
a single leaf falls*


remnant of a hawk harvest
litters the wilderness path
