poetry

more wilderness here
in a square foot

than home
already hotter

than predicted
these clouds

look like a child
drew them

and incessant songbirds
insisting it’s not

summer yet
that we are still

arriving
such a strange

place
this year is

given in to longing
at every margin

still snow in the passes
and this baslamroot spent

  1. Global Warming/Climate Change is now interrupting everyone’s lives. I hear others speak of the high temps coming so early this year. But, in the Nevada desert, it’s still cool during the day when it is usually hot. So for us, it seems, OK, maybe we’ll escape another scorching summer. But, if Earth is so off-balance, that’s not good.
    I enjoyed this piece.
