Highway 70, Mile Marker 382

How much of this
is enough?

How much is
too much?

The wind
doesn't answer.

LORINE'S WATER 


What the river
held, it holds.

What we love,
it lifts.

MORNING 


And now the fog is gone,
like the haze of sleep

dissipated. The birds
come in to feed. I take

my morning coffee and
the cup warms my hands.

Joy and sun touch everything.

Las Cruces

Pushed against
the mountains.

Cupped in light.
Lost morning.

The land asks
to be loved.

Hawk obliges.

Las Cruces

Cows and orchards
and dust. Good-bye.

Good-bye, Las Cruces.

Highway I-25, Mile Marker 8

Sky brings down
the mountains,

the weight of dust
behind us.
