Long shadows at day’s end, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


As shadows lengthen,
ants snuggle down for the night,
their mother the sand.

Shadows lengthen as the day ends.

behind the old doors
mother crooning lullabies
to her restless twins

November sunset, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 

Fleeing their homeland,
a mother and three children
move from star to star—
four hundred yards from freedom,
barbed fencing crushes their dream.
