side stepping cacti

stretched down
in gradients of gray
across the jemez range to the west
thunder a low rumble
while we walk our way home
side stepping cacti
collecting burrs
laddie’s tags clink
in the desert sun air
we take turns following each other
across last night’s rain-wet arroyosthrough sand sculpture hills

mug of miso steaming
while the rocking chair and sound of skylight rain
tug me over into sleep
