Greater Roadrunner — Listen!   1 comment

Listen!
The gravel verge bears a walker:
I hear chewing of shredded wheat.
Listen!
Birds call from dawn to sundown:
tedious mourning dove blues, 
cactus wren’s grinding starter,
darting quail high notes: Uh-huh-Uh huh,
Hey-you! alert – the thrasher arrives.
Listen!
Our homes hum tones tiny to tremendous; 
stretched and still in darkness,
I seek their source, finding some
in the pestling of brain, bones, molars.
Listen!
Attending too, to unfulfilled utterances:
hesitations, head dips, hand flutters,
the staccato of unsettled eyes and breath:
these voiceless notes of soul speak
of love or loss or the deep water strokes
of living without answers. 
Listen!

Roadrunners don’t spend much time in trees. However, this guy was in a mesquite tree where he could more easily be seen and heard by a female a few hundred feet away  — it worked.

What Is He Thinking?   1 comment

What is he thinking
bobbing his tail
up and down
our curiosity shared
not knowing what
the other is thinking.

Conveying a cool air
with an eye on me
only a cocky tease
when his attention
is not me, but
a nearby lizard —

What was I thinking?

He is a joker
Not a singer, he just clicks
To get attention.

Protected
by the cholla cactus
the yellow-eyed
big bird
sits
on the nest
while her mate
continues
to gather twigs
no insult to his
male hood.
