The emigration of love, final part

By Rico Moore

From behind the ridge, the sun ignites a cloud in its morph above the cliffs. In one instant, it takes the shape of a familiar face which morphs into another and yet another until a wind wisps, and just as quickly as they appeared, appears a cloud.

The emigration of love, part III

By Rico Moore

Walking down the trail as dusk departs, the sky grows dark and the clear mountain air reveals the stars. Some of the stars no longer remain, having burned out millenia ago, yet their light continues to travel to my eyes and the eyes of those with whom I walk.

Well, at least that’s what guests at the CannaCamp in Durango will get to experience when the new resort opens on July 1 — that and horseshoes and hiking and yoga, but we recommend not getting too blitzed before a game of horseshoes.

The emigration of love (Part II)

By Rico Moore

Of my earliest memories — of being with my mother and father in an Aspen Grove near the border of Colorado and Wyoming. Down a gully from the cabin, built by my family in the ’70s, is a source.

THE EMIGRATION OF LOVE

By Rico Moore

We slowly walk along the canyon trail. Below us, the creek roars — seems a swift-coursing vein, flowing to Ocean, where waves become waves, travel and pulse onto shores. I’ve been walking these wilds for some time, ever since having discovered them as a child. I’ve been collecting fragments — potsherds — stories of origin. I’ve stored them in a reliquary, shaped like a page that always returns to blankness. Each of the fragments appears as the syllable of a name. I’ve been arranging them for years, listening for a voice to speak — though I’ve never been able to see, as in the reflection of a stream, a face that resembles the feeling I feel as I look on the world. In what follows, I’ve re-arranged the remnants in the form of an essay, in hopes that they’ll sing together in chorus, linking things linked where links are unseen.
