Late Afternoon over Taos Mountain

A Stone: One Daily Observation

Nothing to obstruct the view.

Blood of Christ

The Mountain reflects blood red

Red Hot in the West

Each part of the sky competes for your attention

Sunset in the West

Sunset in the Western Sky

End of a Perfect Day

Marks the end of a perfect day

A reminder of the “gift” given


Sunday Whirl

Wordle #19


Coyote Laughs Last

Residue rises to the top

Floats, bubbles

The wheel turns

New green into yellow

Coyote mocks man

Made of matter

Something from nothing

Skins hang from the rafters

In sickening silence

There is no truth

Coyote mocks man

The breeze passes

A small movement

A rustle of wrapping paper

A kiss behind the ear

Man sees nothing

Coyote mocks man

You snuggle your cloak

Tightly around your body

The vessel

Which holds the fire of hatred

Coyote mocks man

I sweep fervently

Gathering the trash along the roadside

Open the trunk

A small carry on case

Holds the remains

Each individually wrapped

Dust to dust

Coyote mocks man
