Spring Whispers Softly

Spring whispers softly in the desert wisps of mustard sprinkle their humble flowers about lightly dressing the naked canyons. Dainty in yellow simple petals poke through the skeletal remains of last spring's bounty. Dancing gently with the wind as if in a brief fling with life they embrace the moment with cares as scarce as the rain. And with a genteel elegance the lowly mustard blooms. Written on 4/24/2018

"Dainty in yellow" and "dancing gently with the wind" both made my dendrites start yelling "spring!" Nice.

A lovely word picture of Spring in the desert; surprisingly gentle and delicate for such a normally stark scene.
