Mountain Wildflowers

Spring on the mountains
Without rain only a few
Scattered here and there.

You Indian paintbrush of red!
You in your mountain home!
You dancing with your shadow!
You lady in red among gold and blue!
You of short September sun!
You neighbor to running water!
You native of the Americas’ west!
You of captured beauty!

You named of Domingo Castillejo!
You of limited time!

Indian Paintbrush
by
Bob MacKenzie

Like flames, I think,
as I reach toward them,
reach toward Eternity,
where they hang
on the edge:
flames hung
out there between
the open heaven
above the open
earth below.

All around,
the Gods of the Rockies
watch
as I hang there,
one hand grasping
some scrawny pine,
its root straining
the loose soil lifting,
my other hand, left,
somewhere in Eternity
grasping a handful
of fire.

Up toward your smile
I climb
with my blazing trophy,
place it carefully
at your feet
as you lean back
against the mountain
like some goddess
of the earth.

Somewhere above,
there is an eagle:
somewhere in my side,
a pain;
and I am chained
to this rock
for life.
