  • The Thunderbird has taken wing
    Can’t you see
    Flown far out West
    Across the Mojave Desert
    By the sea

    But not quite
    Not even within sight really
    Here shaded by San Jacinto
    Of the white-capped waves
    That lap the shores of my dreams

    A Hummingbird just appeared
    Sipping the tiny trellised flowers
    In the sunlit atrium
    Approving of my words
    And bringing joy to those who read them
