Ironwood Blossoms

Ironwood blossoms

Fragrant after spring time rains

Victim of summer

Palest Of Blue Skies

Palest of blue skies

Streaked with a whisper of white,

Sun blistering every surface.

 

Mountains scorched naked

Contrast with heaven

While blow dryer hot winds

Offer little relief.

 

Uninhabitable would this land be

Were it not for man’s interference,

Damming up the rivers

Turning arid earth to green.

 

Glorified by hollywood westerns

But in reality, this must have been like Hell.

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Hell On Earth Has Come

Hell on earth has come

Scorching both sand and pavement

Sonoran summer

NOTE: As I post this it is 103 degrees F and we have not yet reached the hottest part of our day yet. The projected temperature by Saturday is slated to be 118 degrees F.  Summer has arrived in Arizona!
