Cardón dreaming

Sentinel silent standing
arms branching high

Holding up green fierce flower and thorn
bee and beetle tumbling sun rock and sky

Statuesque shadows lifting long
breathing heat dazed quartz and shale

we dream of night

Caracara sailing azure and gold
at home lizard and snake
elemental white bone feather black

We wonder freely somewhere
far behind long horns who
dwell here and there

None are lost and none are found
shimmering in the light
heat dazed in summer’s desert

we dream of night
