Wine into Water


Water heals her wound
the evidence comes
as a scar blossoms in her flesh
like smoke rising
from burning leaves
it has been a long struggle
sometimes she dreams
of lying in her casket
when this nightmare is over
but for now her thoughts are clearing
maybe Jesus is turning her wine
into water

a cleft in the wall—
the smoke from midday cookfires
seeps into the stones

Daybreak at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona
 


The smokers are still sleeping,
All snug within their tents.
The air is fresh and lovely,
Despite the world’s events.
 
But with the exhalation
Of morning’s first white smoke,
Creatures near the cigarettes
Will writhe and gag and choke.

Frosty morning, northern Arizona
 


in a time of frost
seeking the comfort of fire
the tales told by smoke

Desert flowers shine in shadowy places.

No one can tell me
why the stones are smudged with smoke
disguised as shadows.
