RIM OF FIRE VOLCANO

Ash & rocks
lava rings among opaline weeds
on mango & saffron church walls
on lilac painted houses & peach
cantera fountains

In cumbia plazas
history is recorded with ceramics,
penas of agave azul &
Mayan designs of feathered serpents

Ancestors speak in mathematical symbols
of water still flowing
in corn fields
after thousands of years

 

BROWN PELICAN

I feel the brown pelicanís shadow
cross my arm &
my armís shadow

Like
the echo in sea water
spilling its salty mane
on opal sand

 

CABO STILL LIFE

Bronze godess
in oceanic dress

arms a straw basket
filled with
tangerine light
ablaze with chatter
of spiny cactus wrens

opens
snowy balcony curtains
like vermilion ocotillos
after a storm

                 Nueva Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico
