Southern Utah Summer
drools a stream of golden heat
across the edge of the sky;
Pants its white-hot breath
across the land and burns
the sky to fiery blue.
Parched and arid,
is the land.
worn thin from hot breath
on their necks,
And dust-devils play
where antediluvian streams

The text below is informational in nature only, and
will reappear in many of my pieces, and can be ignored.
This is extra 'content' added at the end to fill space
for no better reason than that "Hub Pages" wants to
take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long
their compositions should be. I have numerous poems
that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.
