Juvenile ironwood tree armed with thorns, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

the pilgrims’ pathway
littered with thorns and sorrows—
still they stumble on

stumbling through shadows
to where her love lies buried—
widow of the month

to stumble past the shadows
and into the light

At the edge of the pond, Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix, Arizona

witnessing pilgrims
in their search for purity—
pine and pond and stone
~~ ~~ ~~
In the bitter way,
even glorious visions
make pilgrims stumble.
