Painted Desert - Poem by Richard Bunch

sunsets aflame
dance
fiercest orange
yielding red
fists of clay

Indian brushes
blush
crimson
thunderstorms
p aint
when rain
hammers
those
petaled arms

juniper
bullsnakes
wind-scarped
hills: these
faces too
fold
into silence

    Richard - I have been there several times, and you describe it beautifully.
    Nice imagery.
