I gently rub
my beard
in deep thought
distracted only
by an occasional
butterfly
passing by
in the middle
of the day.

I savor
the moment
rubbing 
white whiskers
navigating through
mind droppings
reaching out
to catch 
a falling star.

The desert sky
bluer than the 
bluest of blues
a backdrop to
sun-scalded red
creating visuals
turning to words
honed by the soul
itching to be scratched.

A Christmas Raven As Sun, In The Canyon   1 comment

Agua Caliente-9221 Art blog IIA Christmas Raven As Sun, In The Canyon — Image by kenne

Once upon a morning sunny,

I pondered the “Tucson blue” sky,

On the day before Christmas.

No time for a quaint and curious

Volume of forgotten lore,

I watch a black as the sun raven

Steered the gusty canyon winds,

Soaring up over the nearby ridge,

Suddenly entering a deep dive,

With a croak and deep, gurgling call —

“Only this and nothing more.”
