February in New Mexico


Truth or Consequences



Bosque del Apache



Bernardo, south of Belen


La Madera

black-headed grebe’s wake
crosses the perfect reflection
old cottonwood
in the still pond

far above us, sandhill cranes fly north, “chirr-ing”
snow falls over the steaming hotsprings
and here, in the broken hearted north
against my better judgment, spring returns.
