Sunset basalt

Sunset basalt

There are days,
and there are moments
when amazing deeds
must be doneā€¦

rock walls,
hike high alpine trails,
trudge through a fall snowstorm.

And then there
are days and hours
to sit and ponder,
watch and wait,
read and write.

Let the world come to you.

Float the sky
with hawks

overhead.

Staring contests
with a lizard
peering over a basalt
boulder.

Crimson wildflower blooms
rustling
in desert heat.

This will be enough.
