April twilight, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California

one thin spider’s thread
stitching both light and shadows
to the desert’s bones

Light leaks into the barren land.

  1. I think if I lived there I would be starved for green. Light is good.

  2. I like the colours the light makes in this photo.

  3. I keep showing your photos to My Beloved Sandra, telling her how much I want to visit there. She has trouble taking me seriously, knowing how much I love Vermont’s Green Mountains.

      Would it help Sandra (and you) to know that I went to 8th grade at Main Street School in Montpelier, and now I live in the desert? 😉
