The mimosa and mulberry
I take it in
Crisp, dry, sweet
Morning air and the flutter of wings
Golden light and stillness
Intermingle with rust and stone
The joshua tree and hummingbird
I take it in
Beckoning the heat
Midday sun and rustle of leaves
Mountain wind and coolness
Taking the day into night
The bat and ocotillo
I take it in
Moon chasing sun
Purple sky and guitar strum
Howl of coyote and stillness
Welcome a blanket of stars
