Wildfire

remember those days

when you were a kid

not caring about gobbling up

5 candy bars

all at once

or eating a whole bag of Doritos

before dinner?

it was that wanton “gall of it all”

that carefree “live in the moment”

attitude that you long for again

children are the essence of life

the ones that adults admire most

they represent freedom

freedom of spirit

freedom of movement

freedom of the soul

to exist as fluid as a river

and as blazing as a wildfire

always

remember those days.

Other Side of Distance 17

Palms.

Over-spread

Spread over

in January

on desert

afternoons

known for dry

attached to heat.

Then the movement comes.

Convection

starts as a breeze

and ends up turning

the raw into a memory.

And the shadows

of those tamed fronds

are far from

where Jesus tread

but once a connection comes

it’s hard

to let it go.
