The desert of Snow Canyon, near St. George Utah (taken in October 2009)
This is your forty years in the desert this dusty path is the Sinai of your wandering this sand between your toes is the sand that wears down callouses of slavery this dry sun is the heat that burns off fear and indecision this strange bread is the manna that feeds your soul that builds your strength that sets your resolve as you stumble into the promised land
One of the most beautiful trees I’ve seen…also in Snow Canyon
It’s been awhile since I joined in the group at High Calling Blogs for poetry on Friday….Today they’re talking about snow, and here I am thinking about desert’s heat! Also check out LL Barkat’s blog for weekly poetry prompts…she has a beautiful photo of frosty trees there that makes me appreciate the snow and cold all over again!
