Inyo National Forest near Bishop, California

The mountain’s silence
ripens to a golden hue—
autumn afternoon.

Over the Coffin


Over the coffin
three wizened hags burn incense—
long dead is their queen.
~~ ~~ ~~
over the coffin
a pall the hue of sunset—
army widow keens
~~ ~~ ~~
over the coffin
no moral judgments uttered
by the grieving band
