SHADOWS ON THE BOSQUE

Albuquerque, New Mexico has the largest stand of cottonwood trees in the world on either side of the Rio Grande river.  The word, bosque, means forrest.

 

Above me

 In Cottonwood limbs

I hear

Crinkly leafed voices

Pushed out

The Bosque Mouth

By the wind

 

Beside me

In Rio Grande gestures

I see

Swiftly moving colors

Of Bosque blood

In the water

 

Below me

In hard crumbled earth

I feel

Pounding thunder

Of Bosque rhythm

In the ground

 

All around me

In many shapes, sizes

I taste

Intense presence

Of Bosque truth

In the fire

 

Inside me

Across the great mystery

I smell

The fall’s surrender

To Bosque death

In sacred ethers

 

Thank you, Spirit of greatness for living in the Bosque and me.

MY LIFE WORK, if I can get it:  owning my shadow to prevent the spread of fake news

And

Extremism

And

Releasing my gold gifts
