Yellow Is The Color Of Our Neighborhood   Leave a comment

Blue Palo Verde Are In Full Bloom In Tanuri Ridge — Images by kenne

Palo Verde

Green clinger on arid arroyo rock,
Spring blooms of faded yellow you did drop.
Desert dry took a toll of leaf and branch
Leaving photosynthesis to your bark.
Life is tough, lizard kissed, so short and harsh.
Unlike upland cousins, you are blessed:
In your shelter rests a saguaro babe,
Whose stately arms one day will take your place.

A Palo Verde Morning   Leave a comment

Blue Palo Verde Blooming in Tanuri Ridge — Images by kenne

Blue Palo Verde tree
A desert spring signature
Blossoms everywhere.

Morning walks add steps
Only to pause now and then
In a yellow world.
