Here in this painted desert where I live
the hot sun may blister your back 
 the sandy days may lash
 at your eyes 
  Watch the sprawled out inviting dawn with the clouds
outstretched as far as they can reach
smell the assembled morning and
your captured heart sighs 
Sometimes the wind's fiery lashing tongue
is more than one can stand   
Here the unmerciful wind
and boiling hot sun
can rape the land
