Springtime in the Desert

All around
the desert
diverse dwellers are
awake,
alive,
alert.

Palo Verde bejeweled
in yellow buds.
Spring sunshine warms
Lizards' blood.

Pudgy Quail are
rounder than normal.
Mourning Doves build
their nests formal.

Barrel Cactus blossoms
bud and bloom.
People spring clean -
soap, mop, and broom.

All around
the desert
diverse dwellers are
awake,
alive,
alert.

  1. I really like your desert poems. How about a collection?

    1. Thanks, Liz, I really appreciate your vote of confidence. Unfortunately every desert poem I've ever submitted anywhere has been rejected. Oh well...
