Journey

DSC_0368
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona
 


We thought we’d take a journey,
We knew not where to go;
We saw a trackless wasteland
With cactuses aglow.
 
We followed Crow’s directions
From dawn to setting sun,
Until our journey ended
Right where it had begun.

Blaze

After the new moon
a blaze in the eastern sky
startles a white dove.

October morning—
a wounded bird takes cover
in a tangled tree.

Shriek

With a shriek of fright
a dove rises from her nest
and flees toward the sun.

making the desolate way
bearable again

Raucous crow, enough!
Disturb the peace no longer,
screeching at your mate!

Desiccated bones—
noisy crow on the mountain,
let them rest in peace!

No respect

Have you no respect,
crow on the distant mountain,
for the rising sun?

Have you waited long
to catch a glimpse of daylight,
little desert dove?
