Kokopelli’s flute

Björn Rudbergs writings

Carried on winds, a tune,
a melody
as from Kokopelli’s flute
give us hope that thunderheads
that grow above the mesa
will bless us finally
bring us petrichor today
and bind the dust with rain.

Shadowed by the hogan
we listen to the stories
of how raccoon
the trouble-maker
might lead the clouds away.

In this drought the cholla wilt
and as the night arrives
we watch how thunder strikes
flashing dry with bones,
we sigh and bid the desert yet again
to please us
and tomorrow bring us rain.

Today Mish will host dVerse Poetics and bring us the inspiration of the Southwest. She shows us photos and wants us to tell stories from the desert, mesas and maybe the old west. I do remember the Navajo legends from my time many years ago living there. Join us at 3PM EST when the bar opens.
