    ancient laughter
    captured in a canyon wind –
    yucca leaves, rustling © Paloma

    ancestors sighing
    legends of their past

    gust picks up
    piercing echoes trail
    forbidden secrets © Tournesol ‘14

    whispers invite all man-kind
    to ponder impermanence
    through the shafts of time

    lives slip through history’s mesh
    wind blown silence © Georgia

    hissing to be mindful
    oversights of the past

    sudden breeze hints
    messages of total bliss
    budding white flora

    Joshua Tree waves with joy
    Mother Nature’s splendour © Tournesol

    shimmering heat
    the ghosts of that other age

    walk the earth
    the secrets hidden within
    hearts of the budding flowers © Georgia

    ghosts beaming
    nature’s perfect
    harmony

    yucca moths mate
    wind sighs with delight © Tournesol

    morning dawns
    new life blooms in the desert
    first cicada calls

    watching a sleepy lizard
    all is as it was before © Georgia

    not a trace
    spirits return in wait
    winds of the night

    embrace this New Year’s day
    as nature runs its course © Tournesol

    in the early hours
    the clock and calendar turn
    a new year is born

    bright hopes and thoughts
    exchanged with Auld Lang Syne © Georgia
