“The artist’s world is limitless.
It can be found anywhere, far from
where he lives or a few feet away.
It is always on his doorstep.”

– Paul Strand

THE LAST HIKE IN APRIL

The desert blue sky, replaced
by high rainless clouds.

The brittlebush has no blossoms
nor leaves of green without rain.

Your song little bird sings of love
among the branches of thorns.

Nearing the saddle,
the winds chill the skin.

Pausing at the top, we wait
for aunt visiting from Germany.

Then I took my Nikon to capture
a mariposa lily dancing to the breeze

waiting for the moment the
wind will make a flower of gauze.

One eye, the button pushed as
April goes flying by.

There, standing alone

A mariposa lily

Adorns the dry field.

The Photographer

He moves along the mountain trail
carrying a camera over his left shoulder.
This has been a bad year for wildflowers,
only a few scattered here and there
tossed side-to-side by strong spring winds.
Most of the flowers he will see along the trail
he has photographed in better years of plenty,
still he hikes with hopes for the a few images
made special by his every changing imagination.

Bloom bloom, in desert lily
Thirst, sand, mirages silly,
White petals, fairy’s wings
Hope and love, thy petulant twigs!
