tucson desert canoa ranch santa catalina
sabino canyon sunrise pink creeping in
stories of apache raids and ancient tribes
st xavier entombed in the white mission
sky all navy blue adorned with twinkling lights
air so clean you shut off the air cleaners
bones stop aching in a land of old bones
hawks and hummingbirds thrill and a grand barn owl
tubac galleries filled with red and turquoise and orange
gemstones dinosaurs quartz agates sunstones
pearls rubies cacti nomads venders seekers
the earth's bounty all packed in tents in the desert
the silk road the guilds the artists ancient memories
all together in one short moment one dream

I buy a turquoise ring to remember
