it was a sight to see
so many people come from wherever they came from
to gather in the desert to see one simple flower
multiplied to stunning effect.
only so they can grow wilder
more riotous and blowsy
and i like that idea.
if you are anywhere near southern california, go soon – before the blooms fade in may.
it’s just two hours outside of the city i call home
so you just might see me back there on another of these weekends
perhaps this time with a picnic basket in hand.
