Fallen indigo bush blossoms are surrounded by shadows in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona.

Sunset in the Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
She lifted her voice against the sun,
Cursing because Good Friday was done.
The coming of night would make her feel blue,
For none of her dreams would ever come true.
She pillowed her head and turned off the light,
Preparing to face the terrors of night;
But then came a voice, a voice not her own,
Whispering things from the past she had known:
You are the daughter of wisdom and light,
The child of mercy and goodness and right.
Be not afraid of the terrors ahead.
Lie down and sleep, child, for safe is your bed.
Over her heart washed a wave of relief,
The voice in the night assuaging her grief.
Good Friday evening—
singing dark songs, Sister Death
slips into my room.

A snowman decoration in Wellton (Arizona) Memorial Cemetery seems out of place in the Sonoran Desert environment.
One photo, two memes.
In a frosty voice,
the snowman tells new stories
as the old year ends.
