Painted Desert

Sun-kissed desert
tranquil wind-blown footprints
a heart as silent as a cactus

Grains of sand tell a story
multi-colored memories
seraphs busy
making our hourglass

A quiescent desert
painted prismatic memoirs
the look in your eyes; captured
preserved and preciously fossilized

A heart as silent as a cactus
glistens like quartz
seraphs busy
adding grains of time
to our hourglass

A painted desert sings a serenade

Glass Harp

Hands aged like fine wine
Strum goblets with moist fingers
Celestial ice chimes.

Spider Waltz

Geometric pearls
Woven acrobatic silk
Such graceful deceit.
