Orange bold colors – whisper a soft refrain.
Joined by chirps and whistles the melody swells
Into a twilight hymn.
Warm air turns crisp.
A quiet breeze brushes face and hands.
Against the sky, cacti reveal their form.
Desert – calm and tender, breathes an evening song,
Then fades into the darkening night.
The turning of a page.
