The Painted Desert

Painted colors look out-of-place

In the midst of all this sand.

Yet here they are

Displayed in this painted desert.

Red, orange and pink colors

With a dappling of blue, gray and lavender

Parade before visitors’ eyes.

Nature’s handiwork at its best.

      Did you see the information regarding The Grand Canyon anthology in the TGFC post? I found out about The Painted Desert while researching The Grand Canyon. Also, I think if you click on “Follow” while you’re logged into Word Press, you should be automatically subscribed to my blog. (That’s how I subscribed to yours).

      Happy writing to us both!


  2. Nice. Have you seen the painted desert? It’s pretty spectacular in places.

    • sandrabranum says:

      No, but I’m hopeful because it’s on my “to do” list along with seeing High Jolly’s grave. That’s why I asked how far your were from the grave. I researched it for a script I’ve begun.

      Can’t wait to see Bongo’s Creation story. Will there be dogs in it?

    I love the picture on your blog….I don’t know if you took it but it’s beautiful!! As to Painted Desert, I can just visualize it with your words.

      Thank you. Sometimes when I write I wonder if I’m saying enough. That’s probably why I like writing poetry; you can say a lot with a few words. As to the photo, it’s one of the theme’s Word Press uses. It’s what they loaded when I created my blog. I think it’s called “Twenty Ten”. For a time I lost it while looking at other themes, and had to ask the WP computer wizards to return it to me. That’s when I stopped looking at WP’s themes.

      Happy writing!

  5. This poem creates a picture in ones’ mind, all on its own! Lovely! 🙂
