ABOUT Seven Cottonwood of the Bosque
Albuquerque’s Bosque is a wild space the goes right through the center of Albuquerque along the shores of the Rio Grande. One of my favorite things about Albuquerque is that you are always a short ride to natural beauty. The Sandia Mountains to the East, the Petroglyph National Monument to the west, and the Rio Grande and the Bosque right through the center of town.

About the time I was about to begin on the Seven of Trees, the mayor announced the plan to “develop” part of the Bosque. This plan is something that I, and many others, were alarmed about and are still working to change. The Bosque is a great wild place full of natural habitat and wild creatures. It is also full of great ancient gnarled cottonwoods. So I went for a walk with my friend and my camera and photographed many of these giant trees. I choose seven of them to layer with the river in the background and then added seven of the many birds you find in the Bosque: Cooper’s Hawk, Lesser Goldfinch, Downy Woodpecker, Say’s Phoebe, Ash-Throated Flycatcher, White-Winged Dove and the Roadrunner.

THE POEM: Song of the Cottonwoods

In the fall the blaze of your leaves
deepen to bronze and swing
like chimes in the wind.

Your silent song rings from the Bosque,
calling me to wander along the Rio Grande
as Canadian geese careen in from the north
calling out rumors of ice gilding the Wisconsin
lakes, woods and fields of my childhood.
