Take a word or two

Take a word or two—
mingle, calendar, or burning will do.
Splash them on a page,
or hang them with rope
from a branch
like lumps of suet
to feed the hungry jays.
All words woven by your hands
become poems, my daughter,
and yours will be the first weaving
to awaken daffodils
from their winter sleep.
Even the jays
will be amazed.

spinning thunderheads—
so many rugs are woven
from threads of thin rain

ocotillo tapestry
woven through the sky

so many songs are woven
