Mexican Olive Blossoms (Cordia boissieri) — Images by kenne

This time of year, we get up earlier 

with daylight coming earlier to begin 
our morning walk while it’s still cool 
here in the desert. Now that I’m doing less hiking, 
it’s important to get the morning walks in. 
At my age, the key some mornings is not to 
walk faster and longer; it is to aim for continuation — 
got to keep on moving.

 
We were expecting rain overnight, 
expecting my walk might be delayed. 
When it does rain, I can hear it on the skylight; 
not hearing any, I knew there was no by daylight. 
The walk took place on schedule, 
commenting to other walkers, 
“the forecast was wrong.” 
We did get some rain after breakfast, 
not enough for the rain gauge to measure.
