Plaza de Armas, Zacatecas, México
With the same longings
people and pigeons gather
where the fountain flows.
In the quiet hours
stars slip into the waters—
those who drink them shine.

“Come, thou Fount of every blessing…”
Sunflower at daybreak, Southern California
Ryan Burns left a stone at Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona (Read why people leave stones at Roxaboxen.)
Trailing Milkweed (Sarcostemma hirtellum), Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
Cistern at an abandoned house, Southern Arizona
the puddles on the pavement
carry the moon, the stars
and cherry blossoms
Who shall sing to the cistern
of all the things it has lost?
