Southwestern Fare
Author: Catyrose


Purple, orange, and rose tinted skies
Breathtaking beauty enveloping
Saguaro cacti extend their arms
Entangling one with southwestern charm
Prickly pear is now in bloom
Rose colored petals flourishing
Succulent fruit will ripen soon
A sweet yet tart taste upon the tongue
Such a tempting treat in the sizzling afternoon sun
Jack rabbits bound across the highway
Roadrunners speed on by
Vanishing in the mere twinkling of an eye
On starry desert nights
Coyotes voices rise and fall
Crooning a familiar tune
Shadowy figures
Reflecting the brilliance of the Arizona moon
Magical moments beyond compare
Typical southwestern fare
In these early days of June

If I closed.... eyes after reading each line I was there. Along some lonely stretch of road going thru any of the Southwestern states.... New Mexico or Arizona come to mind... Very Picturesque
