Awed into Silence


In this desert wonderland

 I walk the dry earth surrounded by cacti.

Playful winds send my straw hat flying.


In the early morning hours cries of coyotes sound

Like high holy notes, wild and haunting.


 I stand outside surrounded by the dark womb of ancient sky

And breathe with stars that tear my heart open with awe.
