Ancient Shores

Kathy Irvine

Just like your vagrant tumbleweeds,
    recollections of you drift
    through my thoughts.
You were handsome
    as your wind burned cowboys
    with sagebrush collar
    worn against a craggy jaw.
You took me to high places where you
    revealed a ravaged past,
    and why you wear spines and armor plates
    without apology.
Your moody sands etched a deeper truth
    in my face. Still, in the shady embrace
    of your cottonwood canyons I was renewed.
    And, in purple evenings with moon as bold as day.
    you gave me fortunes in the stars.
You were a first kiss.
    I wear its blush today.
But, tomorrow is what I dream.
    'Till we meet again, Owyhee.
