Santa Cruz River Hut   Leave a comment

Santa Cruz River Hut In Southern Arizona — Image by kenne

A little hut, the stuff 
of leaves and twigs
provides shelter for 
an unknown person.

A stuffed monkey guards
the entrance where a bucket
sits for collecting water
from the nearby river.

Stop this day with me
we will talk of its beginning
talk of its end, never any more — 
for now, I witness and wait.

The minute-hand moves slowly
as the sun falls behind a nearby hill
still enough light to make it
back to the trailhead.
