Gila Bend

Central Arizona DesertThe deep greys
bring about a tremble
an intense seriousness
bleak storm resembled

Drawn from graphite
varying shades
all life, all color
progressively fades

Ebony peaks, raven valleys
cut of deep charcoal
the intense feelings
take over the soul

Scattered remnants
stratus they stray
eerie messages
the patterns convey

An absence of light
black to dark
thin mesquite branches
against landscape stark
