In Praise of Simple Things

Observed on Summer Nights


So often I think
Of vast expanses of
Blue that
Comes up on us

Like storms lost somewhere
In the distance.


The soft, steady
Pellets of rain that
Fall like

Evening shadows across
A red canyon wall.


Birds calling. A
Sweetness of smell as
Wind picks up dry dirt and
Tosses it

Off in bug-filled air.


Longings and whispers.
Silence and the break
Of branches off
In calm, cool,
Wild woods.
