Wild River Summer

                                                                   ... she remembers rain on his face

                                         ... her body hard against the picnic table

                                                                                                   ...... wild river summer

The Trees Grow Older

                                       ... I'm done with all the wanting and needing ... thinking this,

                      or that, will surely fill the lonely hours

                                             ... I like this slow unfolding / ... the trees grow older

Midnight Bus

                                                     making your way down the center aisle

                                                     you take a seat in the back next to him

                                                     ride the quiet miles toward the hills of Tennessee

                                                     so that when he speaks

                                                     you already belong to the past

                                                     thirty seven years later

                                                     you will sit at your kitchen table late at night

                                                     think of him

                                                     the strange alchemy that brought you to that midnight bus

                                                     his dark hair in dim light

Through the Open Door

                                    ... on the high road to Chimayo

                                                                                        ... a little church with a dirt floor 
                                               ... through the open door ... wild sage

A Stronger Foothold

                                                   ... among the ferns and forget me nots

                              ... she wanders the banks of the river

                                                                                   ... tenderly seeking a stronger foothold

The photograph is mine.

The Light

                                                ... the deep sigh of memory

                                                               ... and still ... the light in which you hold me
