The Joshua Tree - Joshua Tree National Park, CA (February 2007)



In addition to this photograph, I'm also posting a bit of original poetry which struck me today. I don't know from whence it came, neither know I where it will rest, but here it is for now:


Filled with Dreams of the Skies, I Thought


Filled with dreams of the skies I thought

Mind pondered birth the seas had wrought

There perched upon low earthen bluff

Plodding surf not swift enough

For thought adrift toward distant height

And thither my steps were next to bend.


Filled with dreams of the skies I thought

Alit where crow and eagle fought

Peering down on slope below

With eyes near shut from glare of snow

An arbor green I spied, in spite

And thither my steps were next to bend.


Filled with dreams of the skies I thought

Amongst the leaves sweet Spring had brought

Soon brown, as sap escaped to grave

Thoughts wont to ebb in same strange cave

An undesired fate, this blight

But thither my steps were next to bend,

thither my steps were next to bend.

Ha! I always suspected you were secretly a poet, and now it is confirmed. (at least to me, I'm sure you already were aware....)
This poem reminds me of a gentle breeze rippling long grass on the side of a hill - very pleasant.
