I had a renewed appreciation for water and lush landscape once I returned from the desert back to Ohio.
The shot at the end shows a little break in the desert with the Virgin River as it streams through Zion.
Here in Ohio
Turn on the faucet and I get the fresh
mouth of spring open at my fingertips.
Ohio Summer Storm
At the ledge of the river
a storm swells in the distance
the lamplight flickers on and off with every gust
a tornado touches down 100 miles from here
makes a green sky.
The trees hold their bent positions
when everything releases.
