Half a rainbow

Appeared out my back window

Over the grey mountains

Arguing with the wind

Encouraging the snow to move on

Half the valley bathes in the brilliant sunlight

Clouds covering its hips in blue

Hummingbirds are back

The woodpeckers never left

Slowly a grey envelops the yucca trees

The olive trees wave and bend

As in a mosh pit of weather

Their silver and green leaves glitter

Grape vines poking their heads through dormancy

Joshua Trees dot the landscape like stop lights

As it gets darker and darker

Snow floats down but the pogoing wind

Turns it to rain before it hits the ground


The elements creep in at a snails pace


The sun keeps punching through
