Yucca in bloom, March 2016, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California
 


In this desert climate
Days are getting warm—
Even yucca blossoms
Have become the norm.
 
But only for a season
Are the flowers bright—
When days begin to sizzle,
All things long for night!

Sometimes paradise
arrives as a morning mist—
or a bright blue sky.
