Road

honeysuckle scent
perfuming the ancient road
that leads to the hills
 
on a rocky road
women with delicate feet
walking with their gods
 
fresh winds from the west
erasing every footprint
from the pilgrim way

Window Rock, Arizona
 


eastern winds humming
summer morning songs through a
portal in the rock—
creatures crouching in the grass
the house of their good fortune

Though tides ebb and flow,
and wild winds scatter the sands,
still the old stone sings.

On their homeward way
harried winds turn in to rest,
curling in the shrine.
