Sonoran Storytellers

fullsizerender-59

 

Weave me into painted desert
where sun snakes light
through creosote and sage,
where mountains torn from sky
beg clouds for rain.

In an amphitheater
of mighty saguaros,
a still audience absorbs
sacred secrets to nourish the
blooms of a hot spring.

  1. Woke up needing something and then THIS by the gorgeous Sabrina with the most lovely photos of my favorite landscape by my favorite desert painter of words and images but these four lines especially are INCREDIBLE
    where mountains torn from sky
    beg clouds for rain.

    In an amphitheater
    of mighty saguaros,

  2. I’ve always found Saguaros beautiful, DD, and that blooming thing is especially striking. You’ve captured well the remote loveliness of the desert. It’s something I need to see for myself one day! Are all those ridges on the Saguaros spiny needles??
