Desert drawn skyward

Where the earth meets with heaven

A blanket of brown

Swallowing all in its path

Like a final curtain call

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

 

 *Welcome to the 2014 monsoon season here in the desert southwest.  Maybe we will get a little bit of rain here tonight…if we’re lucky.

  1. This poem – and the image – reminds me of the dust bowl storms during the 1930’s – all hopes and lives lost…but then, of course, each day is a final curtain call- perhaps.
