Shadow Shot Sunday 2: Cracks

Version 2
Shadows often lurk in cracks in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona.
 
 

Some light, some shadows—
summer arranges herself
just as she wants to.

Secrets

By a hidden stream
an old tree guards its secrets—
autumn flows away.

Joyful Path

Tibetan prayer flags flutter near a labyrinth at a church in Phoenix, Arizona.
 


A circular path
where prayer flags and birdsong meet—
my joy is complete.

Self-care


lighting a candle—
self-care for body and soul
on the journey home

tumbled from the stone

New Song

A spring day in Yuma County, Arizona begins with a beautiful sunrise.
 


If no dove should sing
to greet the dawn, a new song
will fly from my tongue.

Footprints

Footprints are sometimes visible in the labyrinth at Unity of Phoenix Spiritual Center.
 


Easter’s come and gone—
I follow nail-scarred footprints
as I journey on.
