Blazing

The chapel at Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tucson, Arizona can be seen through a wrought-iron fence.
 


Blazing midday sun—
the chapel bells are silent,
but one wren still sings.

Song

A photo mural in Yuma, Arizona celebrates the gift of corn.
 


Sunrise to sunset
we hear your song, Corn Mother,
sweeter than ripe plums.

Sky

The sky is bold and beautiful in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona .

 


Languid afternoon—
with my fingertips I trace
the clouds on your face.

Blue Monday: Abandoned Motel

DSC_0452
Graffiti defaces an abandoned motel north of Flagstaff, Arizona.
 
 

Graffiti mars the old hotel,
It’s feeling rather blue.
Is there some way to cheer it up?
I don’t know, do you?

deepening autumn—
the longing of broken things
to be whole again

Footbridge

Entrance to Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.
 


Crossing the footbridge,
I find a desert garden,
but no gardener.

Blue Monday: Cross

Glendale Mem.Park.16 Jan.11 061 copy
An “old rugged cross,” Glendale Memorial Park, Glendale, Arizona.
 


Although the cross is rugged
And the grave is sere,
I come to visit often,
For my beloved’s here.
 
It’s not a chore to visit
Even when it’s hot,
For my beloved greets me
From his little plot.
