New Mexico’s Brillance

Living clay pottery.
Prickly pear flowering like a double spider web.
Dry molecules taking what is needed.
Abundance of Dead Man’s Curves. Thoughts of crashes, and living.

Earth energy lighting up the dark night ground. Pulsing rhythm. This is real.
White clouds moving slowly overhead. Mesmerizing Christmas toy.
Buffalo skull’s medicine wheel of directions.
Fry bread flour on the propane stove.

Our winged, ungulate, and scaled teachers.
Moonwise, sunwise. Woven together.
Horsehair braided into the dream.
Traveling on Mother Earth to the rug auction. Black and white pattern of the Acoma pottery.
