Wildflowers in a Transitioning Dessert Dawn
Dimensions in land and sky
evoke snakes returning to their clandestine shelters
with wildflowers opening
in a mountain valley desert spring.
Shapes cultivate each other,
interwoven in their varied fibers
they unite in textured colors
to create their changing cloud cover.
as a mix of bright reds, orange-yellows, and golds
when dawn awakens.
Special Thanks to Ed Donnerstein for his photography.
Thanks to our two cats, Chloe and Chelsea, for not tugging on the yarn.
Dedicated to the late Eireen Jacobson, a dear friend, and mystic in fiber and beads.
