Books

A boulder surrounded by birdsong in a remote location, Apache County, Arizona
 


Some books I found in passing
Contained disturbing words:
The end is near, they seemed to say,
Pay heed to stones and birds;
 
For in this warming climate,
Where things are changing fast,
Not even stones and blackbirds
Have stamina to last.

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!
