The Tulip Skeleton…

The Tulip Skeleton,

Ballerina in illusory pause.

Dancing upon desert terrain,

To nature’s endless applause…

Soft Desert Accent…

Soft in harsh desert
Gentle breeze within a breeze
Feathery array

Encounter With A Winged Jewel…

image

Zipping by, you caught my eye,
It was just you and me.
Elevated within a dusty landscape,
You danced among the manzanita tree.

A winged jewel,
Light, a servant to your colorful arrangement.
My eyes could not look away,
Mesmerized by the iridescent.

I watched as you took moments to rest,
Wondering if you knew I was present,
Intrigued that you were alone like me,
Party to solitudes’ peaceful gifts.

Upon discovering your name,
I find it suits your beauty.
Dear Anna’s hummingbird,
Thanks for pausing to let me see.

Aside

A Rainbow in The Desert…

Image

 

I saw a rainbow blaze the desert sky

The memory of, remains amplified

The colorful array gleamed perfection

For my attention, the heavens beckoned

My heart and mind gave a grateful reply

 

Against manmade structures and mountains high

A sight unexpected, that mystified

Beauty I didn’t know to imagine

I saw a rainbow

 

Rainbows were always in ample supply

When I lived among the rains’ lullaby

With rain scarce, spectrums can simply become,

Common accents, with amazement deafened

I’ll always cherish the power of light

I saw a rainbow…
