Virga In The Valley…

It’s raining in the sky,
No hopes of touching ground.
Virga in the valley,
Sight without sound.

Beautiful, mysterious darkness,
A mass collection of gray.
Is there a longing to to connect,
Or a desire to stay away?

Virga in the valley,
I see beginning, and I see end.
It’s raining in the sky ,
Strands of water, limited.

Placid Paddling…

Lake Mead, NV

Lake Mead, NV

Through the glass,

My paddle passes.

Breaking gently into tiny pieces,

Rapidly repairing placidity.

One repetitive,

Awkwardly rhythmic row after another,

Propels me toward my destination of non-specificity.

The depth of the water below varies,

As time and distance pass.

And my fear is directly correlated with that depth,

Yet the fear is thrilling…

The heat of the sun,

The wayward frigid splashing from my paddle,

Balance my experience beautifully.

October kayak in Nevada, upon Lake Mead.

With mountains cradling crisp clear waters,

Sets my spirit free…

A Valley of Fire…

The valley of fire,
Flaming desert formations,
Setting sand ablaze.
