Mark said I should know better.
from Arkansas, he was a hard line
without compromise,
a facing rock with only sharp edges.

Jef is a diamond,
shining and bright
among the dimness.

Pesole and beans
across an orange sun table

Opinion. It’s a strange time of year. Winter’s breath has already been felt. The feet of the night are showing, and the mercury dipping. In a few days, druids will bless the sun back to visit as hours are shorter. Maybe it would stay away this time. In the high desert, the ground is like her attitude, and there’s no chance for the smallest seed I might sow. Sowing? What’s that but the mention of a thought detached and distant. A mere twinkle of an idea I could spread around like some wild flower that could bloom – someday. But regardless the hard or the cold, I am not ready to press through that soil to try a planting.
