April 15 #Verselove What You Missed

What You Missed with Allison Berryhill, April 15, 2024


What you missed on your walk yesterday
The precious sun-kissed purple blossoms;
(the ones that weren’t there the day before)
The bevy of quail whooshing and rustling
(out of that nesting bush on the south side)
The fuchsia fireworks of the prickly pear
(they hailed you to stop in awe)
The tickly breeze when you first walked over the pass
The lone jackrabbit dartleaphopping on the trail
(he went faster than you could aim your camera)
The great greening of the desert
(green green after those winter atmospheric rivers)
The pumping of your heart outdoors under a big blue sky
