SONORAN SUMMER

SONORAN    SUMMER



The river has run dry, its dripless bed is empty, and
Crossing the flower carpet dim and dusty, parched
Penstemon and brave little brittlebush,
Expecting an inundation, stretch in a rush -  
Spreading  petals and leaves which their wetted
Wilted tapestry  of color weaves  - but they fast
Revert  to survival tactics and retract petals, in the 
Yearly drought of the Sonoran summer.

.........................................................

Note.

The desert of Sonora, Mexico, is one of the driest in the world, making plant life there  very uncertain.
