frost-covered everything

finally a sunrise

(after cloudy mornings)
orange strip of horizon sky and
quarter moon bright in the
blue-blueing above

_______

frost-covered everything
while sparkling glow under
small moon and later
the frost remains
in patches
where juniper trees cast shadow
_______
i hand off a spangly horse-stickered letter
addressed to arroyo seco
as the trifecta take off for
their chapter meeting
in the still-frosty morning

_______

mesa spa i joke
me plucking eyebrows in morning sun
while trish washes her face
in the kitchen plastic basinet
_______

i think my hiking boots and i
i say are making peace with each other

_______

beard photoshoot (with real sheep wool)
on location (on the mesa)
_______
picking fluffy pup up
into my arms and discovering
he weighs as much as a cat
teaching him to lap-sit in the sun he
is a quick learner

_______

how i gasp when i find
the mountain (two striped triangles that look like peaks)
potshard

_______

trish laughing as i prod the sheep along
saying the buffet is closed!
and asks if we should
herd cattle next year
_______
when i offer to wash the dishes
grandmother shoos me away
and gestures to go rest/sit
