Desert Grass — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In the grass
the cactus, with hair-like spines,
irritate the skin upon touch.
Spring flowers have withered again
in silence, the desert awaits 
the hours of great sorrow
and travail.

It’s Strange How Deserts Turn Us into Believers

by Terry Tempest Williams

I believe in walking in a landscape of mirages,
because you learn humility.

I believe in living in a land of little water,
because life is drawn together.

And I believe in the gathering of bones
as a testament to spirits that have moved on.

If the desert is holy, it is because it is a forgotten place
that allows us to remember the sacred.

Perhaps that is why every pilgrimage to the desert
is a pilgrimage to the self.

There is no place to hide and so we are found.

One of my favorite desert poems.
