SONORAN ELVES

The Sonoran Desert
is an exceptional place,
at once a mythical
and magical land.

One 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,

known for their
clear and quick wit,
traversing between worlds –
real and imaginary.

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
average human height,
can be seen hiking
the canyon trails.

Warning:
they will attack
when threaten with
great fury and brawn!
