As we slept the snow came flying, 

large white flakes falling gently

Silently and continuously settling and lightly lying, 

      Hushing the harbor; muting, muffling, murmurs failing; 

Idly incessantly floating down and down: 

      Noiselessly scrutinizing...

Yellow flowers on desert floor, desert table, desert tree

Yellow flowers brush against my ankle and the blood runs free

Red against the red rock beneath my feet

Red like the skin of the people who live here

Those who were marched and massacred

Those who appreciated and enjo...

as the fall trees question
in their amber light
I sit beside the Salt River
watching Killdeer play
in the slow moving current

I catch myself
looking north
always looking north
where I came from
from which I know
one day I will go back

today I just enjoy
the warmth of...

Universal Solider and Wichita Lineman 

left us not as a Country Boy 

but as Rhinestone Cowboy

Finding a fifty dollar bill 

on Friday the 13th 

didn't justify the hospital wristband. 

That was close to losing

with a deep breath

fear slips aside

of the relatives
getting older

Understanding empathy
lets us see
how you relate to others
or what should be

Woe the heart suffers -
what brings you to tears
Psychopathic pleasures

treasures under
its protection

no matter if

a cave flower
of a kind

on earth

From the outside no one knew

That you were cancer too

Anger and hatred fed

While organ meat was bled

 Never able to give

There wasn’t much life to live
