An “old rugged cross,” Glendale Memorial Park, Glendale, Arizona.
Although the cross is rugged
And the grave is sere,
I come to visit often,
For my beloved’s here.
It’s not a chore to visit
Even when it’s hot,
For my beloved greets me
From his little plot.

Sunrise at a motel in Mojave, California.
Sunrise in Yuma County, Arizona.
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
In a desert place
a twisted, broken willow
murmurs to the stars.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
The desert’s abundance may not be in fruit,
But rather in clouds or in owls that can hoot,
Or maybe in rattlers that slither and slide,
Or in the great thermals on which the hawks glide.
The stones are abundant, and so is the sand
Wherever you look in a dry, barren land.
It’s not as though nothing filled up the spaces
In the world’s wild and desolate places!

Daybreak in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
A great horned owl perches in a palo verde tree in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
One morning an owl in a tree
Appeared to be staring at me,
Or maybe he glared;
It’s not that I cared,
It’s just what owls do, don’t you see?
