Bug Springs 2012Sonoran Elves In a Burnt Tree Near the Bug Springs Trail — Image by kenne

The Sonoran Desert
is an exceptional place,
at once a mythical
and mysterious land.
A little known story,
occasionally heard echoing
through the mountain canyons,
is that of the ageless
Sonoran Elves.

Not your common elves,
but rather well-to-do old elves
of good physical endurance,
clear and quick wit,
traversing between worlds –
real and imaginary.

As a “tweener,”
I was born between
the real and the imaginary,
possessing the elf name
Angaráto Sáralondë —
I first noticed signs
of these desert elves
in the holes
of burnt desert trees.

Although preferring to
stay in the comfort
of their tree holes
the Sonoran Elves,
able to take on
 human height,
can be seen hiking
the canyon trails.

they will attack threats
with great fury and strength!
