Jemez Mountains

 

Massive rocks seem changeless

changing, hues -

their shadows dancing

the cloudless sky above.

-

Cock crows strutting through the corn patch

while an inch worm looks for landing

atop the multicolored ribbon.

 

-

Half moon lit the springs

heat vapors rising

languid bodies

a memory.
