The desert can be such a beautiful place.


The Beauty Of The Desert
 
The sun paints a beautiful picture in the sky

As it starts its rise over the desert floor

No person could paint such a picture

Though they have tried many times before

They could never make a copy perfectly

The wind swept sand dunes by man untouched

The way the roadrunner races across the desert

Could never be captured by a painters brush

Jackrabbits hopping over regal scorpions 

Canyons wind cut over time by sand

God’s inimitable creation 

Land left untouched by modern man


The sun paints a beautiful picture in the sky

As it starts its slow decent for the night

Some creatures go to sleep while some awake

The desert at sunset is a uniquely awe inspiring sight

It can be such a quiet place but it is not always

If you listen in the distance, a coyote’s howl you may hear

It is singing its mournful lonesome song to the moon 

Do not worry you have nothing to fear

As the sun hides behind the ridge

You can see a tall cactus silhouette

Once you see the beauty of the desert

It is something you will never forget

Maybe it's hard to paint a picture of the desert, Roger, but this poem captured it so well!
