There’s A Reason Why The Sonoran Desert Is Called A Lush Desert   1 comment

This time of year Picacho Peak State Park is an excellent example of the biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert.
Plants are at the greenest and wildflowers provide dots of color on the desert canvass.

The canvass of the desert
may appear to have no order.
Yet it is orderly,
but we don’t know why.

A poet has said;
If you want to know
where the flowers came from,
not even the spring goddess knows.

We walk
the lower canyon
after spring rains.
The creek
runs swiftly 
from
mountain snow pelt.

Cottonwoods
beginning to leaf,

wildflowers
cover the ground —

a new cycle of life.

Out of the darkness
Signs of spring begin to rise — 
Liberated, free.

Poppy (1 of 1)-Recovered blog

Now I see poppies
Brightening the desert fields — 
Now I’m satisfied.
