Oak, pine, juniper and ash grew here in these

valleys 60,000 years ago where in summer the

ground was covered with wild flowers among the

grasses. . .

the grains in the cave. . . minute dots

drifting in on what we now call "June" breezes. . .

a little pale blue butterfly . . .

or one of the bodies of . . . the hides and skins of . . .


. . . tiny hollows in a bone decoration . . . or . . .

by water in a deep recess    here    (& here)

a little ripple I think
