Abandoned house, Yuma County, Arizona

In the cabin walls
something purrs by day and night—
a leftover dream.
~~ ~~ ~~
In the cabin walls
nasty little creatures hide,
scrabbling in the dark.
~~ ~~ ~~
cabin by the way—
kneeling before the threshold
a weary pilgrim
~~ ~~ ~~
in the cabin walls
a desiccated silence
wheezing tales of woe

Bits of This and That

This week’s words: infinite, hit, invisible, emits, rhythm, impulse, distance, kneel, creation, whisperings, fists, precise


~~ 1 ~~
Singers and dancers
shaking their timbrels and hips—
holy the rhythm!
~~ 2 ~~
A frank confession:
I peer into the distance,
but I see nothing.
~~ 3 ~~
Where the faithful kneel,
a golden light is shining—
galaxies draw near.
~~ 4 ~~
A brown paper bag
clutched in a child’s hand can hold
all of creation.
~~ 5 ~~
Cattails speak in tongues
wisdom taught them long ago—
reedy whisperings.
~~ 6 ~~
From around the world,
gather stones the size of fists—
change them into bread.
~~ 7 ~~
infinite wisdom
in recounting bedtime tales—
patience with darkness
~~ 8 ~~
invisible hand
stirring up the Milky Way
leftovers tonight
