Animals in the Rain

“Such beauty did unfold that the heavens wept to paint the desert sands. All but the sun with its death rays witnessed the Dance, the Soaking.

Avian Antics

Birdcalls in the night, chafing, raspy. Young and hungry. In-between the glued wood chip trees Under the tufted fibers, green as grass.

Past the snakes, the berried-flower […]
