Arizona Is

by

Shirley Holbrook Fackelman

I think that Arizona is
Enrapped in purple mountain haze
With flora silver, sage and brown
And golden poppies dotted 'round
Canyon's secrets lay deep inside
Bleached bones the desert claimed and dried

Dust devils rising to the sky
The ghosts of cowboys riding by
Exotic birds in colors bold
Scarlet, orange, bright blues and gold
Coyote's howls that chill the soul
Scorpions, snakes in their deep holes

Rich in cultural tales of yore
Proud, Native American lore
Mines of opal, copper, silver
Turquoise hidden in rock corners
Jewels born under cloudless skies
All this where Arizona lies
