I Look Beyond Flowers   1 comment

As I looked beyond

the flowers in the canyon

curvature of the

desert basin begins,

rolling across dried river beds 

to the west where

the sun sets each day

beyond the Tucson Mountains

starting a new day 

somewhere in the east.

We spent the day
driving in the rain
from Houston to Ft. Stockton,
before that
five days of no sun.

This posting
is in preparation
for our return to
the Sonoran Desert
and springtime.

There is no such thing as a weird human being,
it’s just that some people require more understanding than others.

Not yet open,
Still open just enough
To be tempting.

Slowly the pale paddles
Slide open exposing its colors,
Light lavender to light pink.

My cup of joy
A cradle of love,
Moment of bliss.

Desert rose,
Unveil us the secret of life
As the only softness will survive when life is so hard
Soft as water, gentleness not easily broken, a lesson
The smell of you may call thousands souls back
Among of them most will care, a little will scare
You don’t cry when the evil hands break you a part
After all you lead them safe from lost
Brokenness they made,
But your fragrance lingering in hands
Haunting them back

Rare persona… in you desert rose
In the sandy ocean, you devote for better life,
Amazing grace based on your strongest will
Days without rain while the sun vapor the strength
Resistant but beauty even the land is burning thee
Root of hopes now stronger to find water deeper
True charisma, exist in you, desert rose
