Sierra Nevada

Sierra Nevada

Snow fields shrinking sides,
Sponge cake baking in a tin.
Thermal currents rise.
The eagle soars, donkeys bray.
Mountains watch, and doff white caps.

Blue Sky Thinking

White washed village.
Darting lizard in the scrub.
Old men in hats sit
in the square, leaning on sticks.
Bitter coffee in a glass.

Acequias

Melt water channelled.
Mountain canal, rushing clear.
Irrigation need
to feed the valley below.
Above, ibex sate their thirst.
