found in the desert….

The storm woke me at 3:45 that morning with rain slashing sideways into the bedroom windows…bolts of light flashed through the curtains and thunder sounded from its near, though distant home.  I had purposed the night before to rise early and head into the desert’s mountains because I wanted to see and hear the water flowing from the previous day’s showers.  The early morning rain was still alive in the mountains’ waterways when I found myself there only hours later…tiny tinklings of life running slowly down the canyons…resting in small pools mid-trail…and rising in surprising excess atop delicate blades of grass….

    • It smells really nice out there, too, Gunta…like the air has been washed. You’re welcome…and thank you, too. 🙂

  6. Ahh, how refreshing! The image is beautiful, and the narrative is a pleasure to read, but I think the bigger pleasure for me is knowing that you were able to get out there, in what must have been a narrow window of time. And inhale.

    • Yes, indeed, Lynn…it was so very refreshing…and thank you for your thoughts about me getting out there…to inhale. 🙂
