It Begins!

male quail
atop native mesquite
calls out
familiar tune

he lures the one
they pair for life
safely nesting
‘neath silvery moon

la Lune

Tucson Winter Moon

Tucson’s winter moon
peaks down at desert life
chilling deepest night

silver, solid clouds
untorn
keep Sonora desert warm
but on this night
all take flight
forlorn

waxing winter moon
quite bright
reflecting Sol’s revealing light
sandy floor, with shadows
does adorn

loudly, lucidly
marauders warn
as they form
their posse-pack-swarm

some
inevitably
will mourn

Sonoran Stones

Here they are ~
The last in this round of Small Stones
Daily snippets of observation
Ordinary moments of grace

He limped past
through the desert
front right leg stiff, straight
gash, just above shoulder.
A clash with fellow Canis latrans?
Or did human beast intervene?

cleaning
prepares the space
for sacrament
for grace

Loved since 18
Today
Fifty four
Still incites
This heart to roar
How lucky

January 30,2012

I feel you.
Here. Now.
Even though
Your today began
Eighteen hours ago

It’s clear
We’ve met before
As logic
Defies
This connection
Otherwise
