Deer dreams

Mule deer watching

 

 

Mule deer in winter
prowling,patient in dry brush,
waiting for green grass.

New Year’s dawn

New Year’s dawning, cold,
winter branches reach skyward,
seeking the future.

Contrail Treasure Map

 

 

Treasure lies upon
Bibleback and Camelback—
the X marks the spot.

Sorting Gate Haiku

ewes heading for the sort

 

Ewes through the dodge gate,

dart left, duck right, straight ahead—

Destiny awaits.

Edgar at the sorting gate

guard dog hard at work

Avencio catching a ewe

 

in the corrals

Rhen helping Avencio and Oscar to doctor a ewe

crossing the Battle Creek bridge

Snow after drought

Aspen Alley in the fall

 

Snow settles on ground

left thirsty by months of drought,

now kissed by moisture.

Fall Equinox

Squaw Mountain, Lucky Butte, Flattop

 

 

Equinox has come
and gone. Dark creeping closer,
shading dawn and dusk.

Sheep Mountain

Sol y Sombre

The lowering sun
paints golden light and shadow
across the landscape.
