Wellton Memorial Cemetery, Wellton, Arizona

three sighs to sundown
and the full pink moon’s blooming—
cemetery blues
the keening of doves at dusk
and on the cusp of morning

~~ 1 ~~
birth of her firstborn
on this silent, holy night—
the pale young mother
~~ 2 ~~
a young mother’s sigh
consolation of cattle
two roosters chime in
~~ 3 ~~
the new arrival
a stray dog from the village
sniffing at the child
~~ 4 ~~
Laughing villagers,
oblivious to the child,
stumble to their homes.

Prayer flags in Sedona, Arizona

not a sigh of wind
even humble petitions
tumbling to the ground
