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

A River of Stones Flows

at this moment
can I focus on anything else
when towhees and sparrows
dance?

Clouded is my morning
Not my vision
Or my mind
Clarity a gift, earned

January 12, 2012

In the calm warmth
of my solitary day
I realize
I like it this way

Moods tint all views
Best to understand the mood
Than alter the view

Gin and juice
Calming produce
When taken in wee amounts

January 15, 2012

Clouds soften desert sky
Slowing pace of love and I
Offering a reason why
not? lie about and sigh…
It is good.

rain washed away dust
prompted fresh rust, corrosion
decay feeds new life
