This flower is the first one I’ve seen blooming this spring.  This is another great reminder that Spring has finally arrived in Maine.

Day 11: The desert bloom

January 4, 2012

The Desert Bloom


The desert bloom

Is as delicate as a hummingbird

Yet it strong enough to

Withstand an hot and arid landscape.

It is a source of hope

Where hope seems lost.


The desert bloom

Displays the radiant colors

Of the rainbow

Where hardly a drop of rain

Ever falls.


The petals of the desert bloom

Reach for the warmth of the desert sun

As the arms of a child

Reach for the warmth of a mother’s love.


The desert bloom

Is a gift of life from God

To a seemingly lifeless world.
