Drought Resistant

Tomorrow early, I will go to the canyon
and take photos of the fall colors,
but today I am staying home

trying to stay warm without a fire
in the fireplace watching the birds
gathering at the feeder.

Last night I could hear a few raindrops
landing on the skylight knowing that
it won’t last, and it didn’t — this is the desert.

I am amazed how long desert plants
can survive without water, but then
that’s why they are called drought resistant.
