Snowflakes

Palm fronds seem to pierce the winter clouds at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Deepening winter—
I look in vain for snowflakes
on the palm tree’s fronds.

Summer afternoon—
a crow in the tallest palm
jeers at passersby.

Birds

August sunset, Southern Arizona
 


a tattered scarecrow
puts on a new suit of clothes—
palm fronds at sunset
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
enigmatic words
splashed blood-red against the sky—
ravens know the tongue
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
a palm at sunset—
how the sparrows irritate
every thirsty frond
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
gruesome little tales
wagged by pigeon tongues at dusk—
foxes slink away

still desert waters
mirroring each palm and cloud—
scriptures in the pond
