The gnarled branches of an ironwood tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
Shadows under an ironwood tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
A lone ironwood tree stands out against the sky, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
Far away from the ocean,
Surrounded by desert sands,
Swathed in the midday silence,
A stalwart tree still stands.
Gulls and plovers are absent,
But cougars still snarl and scream
Here in this land where oceans
Are only a fleeting dream.
