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.

Fairy Duster Wildflower and Visiting Bee — Image by kenne

The fairy duster
loves to dance

moving to the beat
of the breeze

she attracts
dancing partners —
passing bees.

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.
