High Desert Haiku

windows rattle next to my chair I quake ... old chinaberry tree splits in the wind destiny ... cold winds even the blossoms are fools ... prayer flags the wind horse takes flight ... who cares? not the mountain awash in dust ... the sound of the wind makes me wish ...for deafness! ... I sit watchin...

Still here... but spring has sprung and a burst of creativity has also (like making stuff again despite the effort). First of all I would like to say that I am thinking of all my family and friends that are "jumping hurdles" or climbing what seems like insurmountable mountains. I know (as I have a f...

Re: Healing Jam

Every single day
I heal
Falling down, wounded
I heal
Constant pains
I heal
Others ask me
I heal
A wounded animal
I heal
His heart sputters
I heal
