Arizoning

I stare
at the endless
expanse
of desert
sand
dotted
with scrub
and saguaros.

I am
Arizoning.

  1. The first part is so beautiful. Did you make up the word Arizoning? I love that it has zoning in it.

    1. Hi Liz! A while ago my daughter, Maureen and I were sitting at the school bus stop waiting. She was sleepy and kept gazing off into the distance at the cacti covered hills. I asked her what she was doing and she said, "Zoning...Arizoning!" Then she said, "Write a poem about it, Mom." So I did. :-)
