Driving Throught The Desert

I am driving though the desert
with my wife........ actually she is driving
and I am simply riding in this morning
looking at the sights along the way
this is early spring and it rained a week ago
the desert  is a luscious green today 
with yellow and red flowers growing wild
adding to the color- it is beautiful
we drive from town to town
each one has unique character
though there is a desert theme
they all share
I expected it to be ochere and brown
ready for a fire to burn it down 
but this morning there was green
all around

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
