Brown-eyed girl

Detail from a mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
 

A penny for your thoughts,
brown-eyed girl.
Can anyone grow wise
thinking only of the stars?
When shadows nestle in your hair,
becoming bent and crooked—
is that how wisdom begins?
What about the young boy
who loops himself around
the boa constrictor
and survives to tell the tale?
Will you be like him?
Will you have a tale to tell?
How will you begin?
A penny (that’s enough)
for your thoughts,
brown-eyed girl.

Yellow butterfly,
you rest within the shadows
that mask a stone wall.

Walk

A small wooden bridge—
first, we walk through the shadows,
then into the light.

her rooftop garden
where even shadows ripen
to a rare sweetness

New shadows growing in rooftop pots…

hidden by thorn tree shadows
one small white dove sings
