Fragrant odor of the dawn,
Sweet incense to waking souls
While the fresh dew spreads the lawn
And your spirit day controls
Let me, underneath this tree
Standing, be possessed of thee.
~James Herbert Morse

I'm really posting this for those of you who picture the desert as a sandy, empty, and desolate place. Who knew that a place called the Chihuahuan Desert could look like this?
I feel so lucky to live here.
*Maybe I should have called this post What I See in the Morning Before I Put on My Glasses. Looks a little blurry, doesn't it?
