Easter Along The Borderlands   1 comment

Spring Flower (1 of 1)-2 framed blogEaster Along the Borderlands — Image by kenne

When you’re at the mission
Sixty miles north of Nogales
And it’s Easter time too

It’s so easy to put on airs
At the place where
Father Kino drink the

Spring water that once was
Near the banks of the
Santa Cruz River.

On the first Friday after Easter
The Tohono O’odham of the
San Xavier Reservation

Conduct a candlelight parade
Just as the setting sun kisses
The white dove of the desert

Where she awaits the coming
of the
“Excellent Builder”
to complete the second tower.

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.
