Flowers Born to Fill the Dessert Air!

California Poppies and Rolling Hills

They thought
The flower was
Born to
Blush unseen.

And waste its
Sweetness
In the
Dessert air.

But the
Destiny of
The flower
Unknown to them.

Was
A different story
To be known
In time.

The rains
Poured down
And the
Dessert bloomed.

Bringing
Travelers from
Far and wide.

To walk through
The dessert now
Full of flowers.

Inhaling
Their sweetness
And,

To see the
Flower blushing
In the sweet dessert air!
