nights and days away
returning home late last night
startlingly found
my high desert home engulfed
in delightful petrichor

por varios días
no estuve en casa
volví anoche
descubrí el desierto
envuelto en petrichor
for life is but short
earth twirls without regrets, but....
love lasts forever

dos diez a. m.
estaré muy cansada
al amanecer

two ten a. m.
i will be way too tired
to wait for sunrise

como un sueño
mañana de otoño
azul y oro

almost like a dream
cool early autumn morning
golden and bright blue

oriental vision
crescent moon and morning star
night fades to light blue

matt and izz,
rushing up the hill
leaving the city behind
like a forgotten dream...
weekend at guga's and pappy's.
jubilant, meeting benjie,
their dearest friend.
enjoying autumn's first saturday...
matt and izz,
my grandchildren.

gathering sweet pears
from our little backyard tree
harvest moon rising

napping in my arms
rhythmically breaths
my daughter's daughter

flock of little birds
from the old mulberry tree
gracefully flies down
not unlike the soon to fall
melancholic autumn leaves

first day of summer
air conditioning full blast
people laugh outside
inside my little office
is freezing...where is my coat?

two ravens gliding
in romantic rendezvous
almost like dancing

graciously locking
flower month
blue moon

three fifteen p m
anticipating evening
and full flower moon

happily skipping
along grandma's shopping cart

early march

peach blossoms

almost mocking

naked mulberry
