Amber sand, transfixed in white, moonlight cords
tatter on idle horns, of an idle cattle skull.
Rose petal pink streams flutter on desert winds,
a rider loses himself, if for a moment.
Red cliffs, rolling, drag the sun across the
azure. Wizened cow skull, still, the threads
are severed. Liberated light rises and rises. On
the pedernal roses unfurl, and unfurl.
Crimson hills tumble over horizons edge,
clouds contemplate sprints across the sky.
Sunlight strands sift through dust, wrapping
over and around gleaming horns.
Rider crosses the range, his eyes catch the
rams skull, suspended by a gossamer web.
These are tests for a certain kind of imagery (so love Georgia O’Keeffe), so they aren’t all there yet. Hopefully they’ll lead to something bigger.
