Desert wildflowers in the spring 

Bring joy to the eye

Responding to the mourning sun

 Cresting over the mountain

Opening to a silent knowledge and 

A spirit enlightened of itself

To which I contemplate the void.

You can call me

Blue Phacelia,

Wild Heliotrope, or

Scorpionweed,

But don’t call me

Weed!

Desert Full Of Essences   1 comment

Come search the desert for wildflowers . . .
Morning bride and paperflower
Wishbone four o’clock
Desert lavender
And lupine,
Flaunting in their bowers;
Brittlebush with green flag half-mast high,
Succor to match the cotton clouds,
Poppies dotting the mountain slopes,
Scented creosote and lace pod mustard
Desert full of essences
Fit for fairy presences . . .

— my desert take on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s, Nature (fragments on nature)
