Desert Beauties

Desert Beauties

In a landscape of mostly browns and beiges
With a few touches of cacti and sages,
You simply have to look to find surprises.
The colors of the sunsets and sunrises,
Along with the flowers of Spring and Summer,
Makes it dramatic for a photographer.
The soft pastels of the dawn in lavender,
While the sunsetís reds and purples are bolder,
The hot tri-tone blooms of the bird of paradise
Compliment the beautiful turquoise skies.
Crowds of golden poppies gracing a hillside,
One of the many surprises where I reside.
Life and color are precious in the desert,
Where a thunderstorm can sound like a concert.
Author's Notes:
Brilliant colors stand out against a neutral background of beiges and tans.
