Albuquerque Spring


It is still spring wherever
the trees draw their drinks,
so granular and dusty still
budding bright over
the last seed fall, swept
with leaves, crisp down
to spines–There are blooming
clumps of purple, yellow
standouts against white, rose
brown sand soil arrangements
with stones, stumps, brittle-
bone twigs, yellowed needles–
Strong sunlight rules hard
on gardens that grow shadows
better than anything.
