Purple flowers, Rio Grande Nature Center 2

During one visit to theĀ Rio Grand Nature Center.
Tricia, Eric, and I saw an eagle
soaring high above us:
beauty, dignity, power in flight –
a joy to watch
but hard to photograph.

Not so these purple flowers
along the path.

Wistfulness

Wistfulness mixes with joy
as I read Eric’s three-letter text:
ABQ.
He has landed in Albuquerque
for another summer at Ghost Ranch.
Joy.
It appears most likely
I will not spend
any time in
New Mexico
this year.
Wistfulness.
So I post this photo of the Sandias
taken from the Rio Grande Nature Center
and smile.

See you along the Trail …
just not the Trail in New Mexico …
at least this year.
