Task

Watching through my window as the Arizona sun rises in September
 


Little mourning dove,
singing up the sun each day—
this task falls to you.

~~ 1 ~~
 
autumn afternoon—
in the park two young women
kissing each other
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
watching the old dog
try to lift his left hind leg
to spray the fire plug
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
unexpected breeze
throws my paper boat off course—
autumn afternoon
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
leaves in the tea bowl
sinking down to the bottom—
I heed the omen
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
impossible task—
keeping the stone on my back
while running 5k
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
my neighbor’s mongrel—
how perfectly she retrieves
the little red ball

Fruitless

Seeking shepherd’s purse
in lands of desolation—
fruitless is the task.
