our father sun has reached his peak///

a full cycle witnessed sensationally///

ears, hands, hair, skin... eyes... heart. phased///

the road is calling, grabbing greedily///

for now, she sings from the east///

go running towards her uncertain embrace?///

or is patience the humble strategy of growth?///


the long green stalks stretch and reach///

soon she will hang her head at the death of her father///

only to lift it upon his rebirth each dawn///

Desert Adventures

masada in the distance and on down to the dead sea

Ever Ride Your Bike in an Oven?

Late into the night we drove out into the desert,
we slept near the car and woke as the sky got brighter
no sooner than the sun crested the distant bare peaks than the air began to warm, quickly
hotter and hotter

riding a ridge above masada
distant bedouin camps
roadside camels and donkeys

baren beauty

long dry hot day of looking for rest
solo crater dusk ride
colors shifting, shawdows stretching
slept hard in a bedouin camp
mosquito swatting

early morning moving
riding into the oven...
the sun rose as did the temperature
sparse refuge amongst the blinding moonscape

If a Mango and a Tangerine,

You know...

did It

This is what their love child would be

lowquat, shessek, escadenia
english?, hebrew, arabic


Desert sneezing, wheezing, breathing
Infiltrating, hard, blanket
Dynamismily coating, glowing

tomorrow it's gone
