To this desert land,
Where vistas are grand—
Come out and enjoy the great view!

Blue Monday: Long and Lonesome Road

An unpaved road waits for adventurers at at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona.
 


They say the best roads are out West,
And that those who take them are blest.
But if they get lost,
There’s such a high cost,
Why bother with getting so stressed?

For cactus blossoms
I keep watching and waiting—
a crow watches me.

tall saguaros quench their thirst
with sips of water

On a cloudless day
not even crows fill the void
with their raucous songs.

Journey

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona
 


We thought we’d take a journey,
We knew not where to go;
We saw a trackless wasteland
With cactuses aglow.
 
We followed Crow’s directions
From dawn to setting sun,
Until our journey ended
Right where it had begun.

Whetted by the sun,
the cholla’s deadly daggers
keep all foes at bay.
