mountain mourning

Central Arizona Desertfriends of long ago
you may soon see
’tis everywhere you look,
and our hearts, it took

bright topaz sunsets
royal mountain views
my home, now different
my balance, now bent

the wound, still open
the memories, still sad
internal voices they chime,
’tis not, a celebratory time
