Italian Springs 2013Desert Evening Primrose — Grunge Art by kenne

I grow 

in the bajadas

along rocky slopes

pushing aside 

dry gravel

in search of sun.

No rain 

shortens my growth,

hastening 

my buds

to open early

in the cool

of the evening,

closing by

mid-morning.

I am

a primrose,

oenothera primiveris

by name.
