Uncertainty gnarls

through a monotonous sky

roaring across air

sending jet-waves of vapor

to fall upon this primitive sea of

Piñon and Juniper desert

that is my home.


Forged between the foothills

of Pikes Peak, I’m familiar

with elements of weather

changing its wardrobe often

three times a day

Winter chewing Spring

Summer teasing lingering frost

as restlessness mounts and assaults

its own personal ascent.


All streamlines of timid bloom

and death by freeze remains a

concert of the forgiving heart

a song of nature we’ve been

innately groomed to participate in

bleed alongside its rippling backbone

exhale forth its ancient chant

waver without adversity in its moments

of chosen stillness ~ ~

alas stand proud within its raging storms.


We are its catalyst,

            its eternal hum.
