And as I turn home where
I know you are already awake,
Wandering slowly through the house
Searching for me, I can suddenly
Hear my own footsteps crunching
The simple astonishing news
That we are here,
Yes, we are still here.

— from “Dawn Walk” by Edward Hirsch

If literature has engaged me as a project, first as a reader,
then as a writer, it is an extension of my sympathies to
other selves, other domains, other dreams, other worlds, other territories.

Bougainvilleas: Love/Hate Relationship   Leave a comment

Bougainvia-72Bougainvillea — Image by kenne

We all love the beautiful Bougainvillea blossoms. They add a lot of color to the Tucson landscape. However, maintaining them can be very frustrating. For starters, they have very long thorns, so pruning must be done very carefully, and they will die at the first frost, which can happen easily since we live near a wash allowing the cold night air to drop lower than the surrounding areas.

He loves bougainvilleas
but hated the thorns.
He wanted to know
why all beauty came
with such pain and
was it as answer less as
where eggs came from
when life is all about the eggs,
“because we need the eggs.”
