Glimpse

Midsummer sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


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

Walt Whitman Would Have Loved It

August sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
  


Walt Whitman would have loved it,
The song I heard at dawn,
A part of the great chorus
That seamlessly goes on:
 
The singing of a nation
In voices great and small—
Workers in the factories,
And horses in the stall;
 
Stones in parched and lonely lands,
A bird upon the wing—
When the blazing sun comes up
All things begin to sing.

Scolding

Crow on the mountain,
don’t you ever grow weary
of scolding the stones?

morning by morning.

Note

The summer afternoon sky framed by the branches of a dead brittlebush, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Summer afternoon—
a dove on a barren branch
repeats the same note.

Emptied

Emptied of birdsong,
a low place in the desert
fills with wind and sand.

Lone indigo bush—
not even a mourning dove
clings to its branches.
