Blue Monday: Desert Family

Detail from a mosaic on a community wall, Ajo, Arizona

We’re a desert family,
We know the ways of stones,
Cactus wrens and rattlesnakes—
The desert’s in our bones.
To snatch us from the desert
Would make our poor hearts ache,
For desert-dwellers cannot thrive
Beside an azure lake.

loving family
even on snow-covered paths
no faltering steps
