Imagine

IMG_8554
A pathway in suburban Riverside County, California.
 


A path of mere human invention
May somehow defy all convention.
Imagine the creechas,
Mice, spydas, and leeches,
That follow the path with intention!

Blue Monday: Garden Path

DSC_0521
A bright spring morning at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona


A bright blue day is the best;
It far outshines all the rest.
There’s really an art
To cheering the heart,
Something that bright days do best.

Let Us Praise


Let us praise the raven and the rain.
Let us praise the singer and the song.
Let us praise the Cloud Spirit,
leading us to other roads
when our path is hedged and blocked
by creatures sinister and sleek.
Let us praise the river stones
whose dignity remains intact,
despite the ravages of floods and drought.
Let us praise all things great and small,
for the hundred-thousand ways
our days are measured out.

What are the chances
that any stone on the path
will rise up and sing?

autumn afternoon—
taking the shadowy path
but no companion

Flaunting

On the mountain path
a cactus flaunts its blossoms
for a day or two.

ten thousand pilgrim footprints
lodging in the dust

Glimpse

Through the leafless branches of an old ironwood tree, the Sonoran Desert sky in southern Arizona glows deep blue.
 


winter afternoon—
a glimpse through twisted branches
of the barren path

to a distant path

choosing a new path
before the wind can erase
yesterday’s footprints
