the desert i know best

this desert
this dried forgotten memory
ancient with love
these barren mountains and hills
the dry washes
the invisible trails these stories
of rocks and stones this insoluble
landscape made graceful by heart
that knows without ceremony
mojave brown and colorado red
space without direction
space without calling
arms outstretched to sky
the heartbreak of love
alive in the heart that sees
