Summer has now dropped into autumn, cleansing
the surrounding atmosphere.
A cool wind pushes clouds across the face of a
silver moon creating a surrealistic scene.
Standing there in the shadows I feel comfortably
surrounded by the encroaching silence.
For an instant my mind is void of all suppressed
and disturbing concerns.
Yet, thoughts soon turn toward the evolution of
this desert landscape.
There is a lingering danger in the air that weighs on
me each day.
They want to develop this beautiful piece of the
earth and take away life as it exists.
Flora and fauna are now at risk for the sake of
Endangered species will disappear along with any
future dreams I may hold.
The spread of humanity will overrun this segment
of desert and its inherent beauty and serenity.
The demise of this desert is not metaphorical and
my passions are being destroyed.
