There’s A Reason Why The Sonoran Desert Is Called A Lush Desert   1 comment

This time of year Picacho Peak State Park is an excellent example of the biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert.
Plants are at the greenest and wildflowers provide dots of color on the desert canvass.

The canvass of the desert
may appear to have no order.
Yet it is orderly,
but we don’t know why.

A poet has said;
If you want to know
where the flowers came from,
not even the spring goddess knows.

This is the time of year for some outstanding wildflower displays in the Tucson area, and we are having a banner year. The desert is quick to display its beauty after abundant rains we have experienced this winter.

Out of the darkness
Signs of spring begin to rise — 
Liberated, free.

Now I see poppies
Brightening the desert fields — 
Now I’m satisfied.

Things of Poetry

Poppies

line the canyon trail,

brightening

each hiker’s way.

Passing greetings

share the joy

as the morning sun

intensifies

the canyon colors

brilliantly reflected

by each poppy,

the things

of O’Keeffe —

real poetry.
