The fairy duster
loves to dance
moving to the beat
of the breeze.

She attracts
dancing partners
spreading her dust
on passing bees.

Southern Arizona trails are very busy this time of year and unfortunately keeping search and rescue crews busy. Those of us who are frequently hiking the Santa Catalina Mountains are aware of some of its dangers. However, many of our winter visitors are not prepare for the rough terrain. This past Sunday the DPS copter crew had six rope rescues in the Catalinas, a one-day record.

“Oh that the desert were my dwelling place,
With only one fair spirit for my minster.
That I might forget the human race,
And hating no one, love her only.”

— Lord Byron

Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowers,
You belong somewhere close to me.
Far away from your trouble and worries
You belong somewhere you feel free.

Insect lover of the sun,
Joy of thy dominion!
Sailor of the atmosphere,
Swimmer through the waves of air,
Voyager of light and noon,
Epicurean of June,
Wait I prithee, till I come
Within ear-shot of thy hum,–
All without is martyrdom.

— from The Humblebee by Ralph Waldo Emerson
