Tucson

An ode to my hometown…


A hot wind blows across my face
On the ground, cactus and gravel
I know this town, I feel this place
No matter how far I travel

A stillness comes across the land
The animals are all asleep
A zephyr plays across the sand
Unbeknownst to those burrowed deep

Suddenly, lightning and thunder
A symphony of nature’s might
The desert is torn asunder
Behind my window, what a sight!

The clouds lift, the clean air smells sweet
A spirit of joy, renewal
Rainbow puddles under my feet
The mountains shine like a jewel

This is Tucson, land of my birth
Mariachi music, so clear
From whence I came, for what it’s worth
And in my heart, I hold thee near
