Grin

With a crooked grin
a scarecrow honors blackbirds
and their many wiles.

Long Moons Ago

Winter full moon setting over Wellton, Arizona just before daybreak
 


Long moons ago I had a penny;
I thought it was a lot of money.
I clutched it, saying, “I’m so rich now!”
My father thought that I was funny.
 
The years have passed, I still count pennies,
But this I count a much greater boon:
To linger near the palms at midnight,
Admiring the fullness of the moon.

Snowman

The time of celebration
Is quickly drawing near.
The snowman in the graveyard
Announces joy and cheer.
 
To every heart that’s grieving,
To every weeping eye,
The snowman in the graveyard
Brings good news bye and bye.

Flood

Detail of a carpet in a church in Wellton, Arizona
 


If a mighty flood should come,
Sweeping through the church’s doors,
Carpets would be overwhelmed
As would all the parquet floors.
 
When the mighty flood subsides,
Just as in the Bible lore,
There will come an olive branch
From the One who makes waves roar.
