The ebb and flow of inspiration for prose and poetry is not easily explained. Yesterday morning during a prairie outing with Cooper, contrails of jets departing the Albuquerque Sunport stirred a tribute of the enduring Acoma Pueblo cultures in New Mexico. The words did not fall into place until the stroke of midnight.
Sky people write ethereal stories
Of Aa'ku, Hakukya, and Haak'u
Across an azure celestial sphere.
Take heart, they herald a new dawn
Of ancient songs and spirit journeys,
Quests for the place that always was.
