And look at how the three in front of the sun align with the three to the north!

Taken around 7pm on 84, the east end of Pagosa Springs. May 20, 2013.

vast ocean
vast skies
vast light
vast wonder

shimmering, flickering
appearing in essence
arisen in a sweep of shadow
with needles of pain
and blossoms of joy

more air?
more company?
more slices to tell you “not worthy”?

scarred and concealed
sustained by roots deep and hidden

the cracks heave
the painting peels
and still you return in kindness
