Song

Late winter sunset, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Wilderness evening—
a dove returns to her nest,
cooing one last song.

Blue Monday: Tangles

Tangled branches of a fallen palo verde tree, Yuma County, Arizona
  


Beyond the tangles, a patch of blue
Catches my eye and gives me a clue
About life’s tangles and how long they’ll last:
In the blink of an eye, they will be past.

First

Version 2
Indigo bush on a winter afternoon, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Full moon or blackbird—
which will be the first to come
and chasten winter?

Blue Monday: Snowman

Holiday decorations at a Yuma County, Arizona church
  


The snowman wears a blue hat.
He thinks it burns up his fat.
The poor guy is wrong,
But he’s so headstrong
You can’t convince him of that!

Song

Detail from a painting in a Yuma County, Arizona church
 


The song of a dove
settles onto the cushion
of an empty chair.

Bird

d28d4301-e9d6-4564-b746-afc677f408e1_zpsebj3h420
Remains of a ravaged bird, Yuma County, Arizona
 


A bird without its feathers
Is not going anywhere,
Although it longs for freedom
And for flying through the air.
 
A bird without its feathers
Is deceased, most probably,
And will never see the sun
That still shines on you and me.
