Last Figs

In the winter, nights and mornings are chilly here in the desert. Rain showers are frequent, and the cactus are plump. The mesquite tree is losing it’s fern like leaves, creating a velvety blanket below it. Birds pick through the refuse to build nests. Southwestern wildflowers are revealing colorful faces as they bask in the afternoon sun.

fresh green growth erupting forth
last figs decaying
