after a desert rain–dVerse Quadrille


after a desert rain

drab colors come alive
gray-to-mahogany
vibrant yellow silver
shimmering sand

clouds hang low
over mountain tops
wisps of mist curl
in crevices of rocky heights

I swoosh through water
puddled on the highway
watch hawk swoop low
searching for basking prey

sun peeks through

A very late entry for dVerse Quadrille Monday–44 words using the word curl.

    I liked the idea of the sun peeking and the mist curling. I hadn’t thought of mist curling before, but, thinking about it, it would be odd if it moved in a straight line.

  8. We drove through Tahoe this afternoon from a trip in Utah. The mountains are so beautiful – love the mist that you mentioned in your poem. Beautiful poem – describes the beautiful mountain scenery perfectly. Things are going well. I’m on break from school – so far so good 🙂 How are you doing? I was hoping your would link a poem.
