This perennial is one of the first blooming plants in the Sonoran Desert. These scrubs love hot and dry climates, so the Sonoran Desert is perfect for them.

The fairy duster
loves to dance
moving to the beat
of the breeze.

She attracts
dancing partners
spreading her dust
on passing bees.

Insect lover of the sun,
Joy of thy dominion!
Sailor of the atmosphere,
Swimmer through the waves of air,
Voyager of light and noon,
Epicurean of June,
Wait I prithee, till I come
Within ear-shot of thy hum,–
All without is martyrdom.

— from The Humblebee by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Desert Dances

Dormant desert awakes.

She drinks deep, stretches, sighs
exhales fragrant blossoms
on her warm, pregnant breath.
Her soft, supple sagebrushed
sparkling curves adorned with
splashes of pink, white phlox
and sprays of desert peach

invite you to tumble
down her snowy mountains
to abandon yourself
to wildflower wanders
to soothe in her hot springs
to rejoice in salty
waters of turquoise lakes.

Desert dances await.

She loves the mystical

power of flowers,

its bloom symbolizing

the human existence,

opening oneself to love.

As spring embraces the desert,

among the first to appear

is the dazzling fairy duster.

Present everywhere —

on hillsides, washes, and grasslands

throughout the Sonoran Desert.

These beautiful flowers

covey a touch of magic,

of having mystical powers,

charming her —

this mystical flower

in a mystical land.
