Song Of The Desert - Poem by Smoky Hoss

The desert's melodic call
echoes forever
off umber canyon walls.
The fiery sun in hymn
at a high-fever pitch
joins right in.
The cougar, coyote, scorpion, rattler and javelina too
all stand dazzled by the music
floating upon the vast empyreal blue.
Out there even the air
dances and prances
without a worldly care.
It all begs: Come see, listen and hear,
let this ineluctable song
bring you in, and draw you near.
Once the melody your heart has found
nothing else will ever satisfy,
no, not another sound.
So come out and sing along,
let your soul be caressed
by the beautiful and mysterious desert song.
