Almost A Line of Poetry

Winter’s trees place shadows on the walls.

Leaves pepper the dirt floors

Below broken rafters open to the sky.

Windows and doors missing from their opening.

An old canning jar, hot-pot and boots

Placed in open window, not by chance.

Someone arranged them —

Almost a line of poetry.

In a Corner of the Ship

The old
ship 
darkens
his sober face.

Through the open
porthole
he  listens
to the sea —

Prelude to
the new.

This island in the sky,

an old copper mining town

between Prescott and Sedona,

today supported by tourism,

run by old hippies —

music festivals,  

art galleries,

craft stores,

coffee houses,

restaurants —

holders

in due course

of timeless moments

in a sky-island vortex.

Old Ranch Bunkhouse Along The De Anza Trail   14 comments

Bunkhouse Windows — Images by kenne

Hidden

Under a thick mesquite bosque,

A barbwire fence

Separates 

The historic Juan Bautista de Anza trail

From an old

Abandoned building,

Whose cracked adobe walls

And collapsing roof

Provide sunlight and shadow 

Through yawning windows

On individual items

Of cowboys past —

Enduring whispers

From a permanent

Desert breeze

Bearing celebratory voices

After a hard day’s ride.
