Winter Afternoon Santa Fe


The late stillness of day
off season.

Old friends that once were close
dissolved
in the dust they disappeared.

Wired shadows unwind the trees
shapes slowly vanish against adobe walls
silhouettes stretch into diagonals
sky stone blue and clear.

Evening birds
remind us of the silence
the death of romance
a night that remembers nothing.
