Nature Is Imagination Itself   Leave a comment

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes
of others only a green thing that stands in the way.
Some see nature all ridicule and deformity…
and some scarce see nature at all.
But to the eyes of the man of imagination,
nature is imagination itself.”

— William Blake

“Joshua Tree was named by Mormon pioneers — The arms looked like Joshua beckoning them to the promised land.”

“I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for”

― Bono, The Joshua Tree
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable
to the Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the Sonoran Desert.

branches reach skyward like arms to Heaven
alone between sand and sun
waiting for an answer

The Mohave Desert Joshua Tree   Leave a comment

There’s a section of Highway 93
between Wikieup to Wickenburg —
Joshua Forest Scenic Road.
California has its National Park,
Arizona has its Scenic Road.

This narrow,
hilly  two-lane road
is part of our route
to Las Vegas
and Zion National Park
from Tucson.

It’s not easy to stop to take
snapshots of these majestic yuccas —
no shoulders and only an occasional
ranch road that sneaks-up on you
while being pushed by speeding drivers
trying to pass you.

On a recent drive
we were able to pull-off
to the fence-line
where others had done the same
leaving behind trashed beer cans —
what a paradox.

 The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable to the
Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the
Sonoran Desert.
