Prickly poppies, Yuma County, Arizona
Ocotillo blossoms, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona
Fading bougainvillea blossoms on a trash heap, Wellton, Arizona
What is there to celebrate
When the brilliant blossoms fade?
Who rejoices at such loss?
Are not tender souls dismayed?
And yet in fading flowers
We see clearly what we are:
Blooms that shrivel at day’s end,
Leaving nothing near or far.
