I dream sienna

Sunsets drippppppping

Onto rocks

Carving red rivers

That slice down

…………….down

…………….down

…………….down

…………….down

Like blood bathed tears

Slice flesh.

It is a Grand Canyon of pain

River winding edge to edge

Touching grief upon grief

From the top

Black trees silhouette

Against a flaming sky

scorched earth burning

in the beauty of pain.

haiku- moonrise in Arizona December 25, 2013

The great orb rises

into a molten sky

above endless red dust

 

poem- Havasu

Lunar landscape

miles upon miles

of dust,

red rocks,

and sky

stretching wider than a sky has business stretching

then a surprise:

startlingly blue lake

reflects cloudless blue sky

and London Bridge.

How odd.

Lake Havasu City, Arizona, is set beside the lake formed by Parker Dam on the Colorado River.  The city is accessed via historic Route 66.
