Grace

Teddy bear (or jumping) cholla cactus near Ajo, Arizona
 


The desert is better than books,
No matter how barren it looks;
There’s grace to be found
In dry, dusty ground,
In spite of the absence of brooks.

Seeking shepherd’s purse
in lands of desolation—
fruitless is the task.

parched and barren land
panting for refreshing rain—
threnody of dust
