Northern mockingbird by name,
I call him Sabino Canyon
because that’s where I saw him
atop what may be a favorite
berry eating perch as evidenced by
the seed dropping beneath him.

The morning sun rises
over the Sabino Canyon
casting long shadows,
the ghosts of trees
mesquite by name
after years of caring
for young saguaros —
blessed are nature’s
caring ways.
