Deserts dream

Of the abundance

The rain brings

Open leaves

And vibrant green

And so much of all that is alive

We find rich soil

And a growing season

Far from the punishing sun

Where drunk bees

Drift between flowers

In their unhurried way

It is easy to forget

Those verdant spaces

Bursting with color and beauty

As we face the monochrome

Drama of mountains

Over sand

A beauty borrowed

From an alien planet

Challenging us

To plant roots

Against the harsh climate ~ Caroline A. Slee
