is a presence
a creator of the West
when the presence becomes:
clear dry air
brilliance of a starry night
grass bunches and clumps 
and piling tumbleweed..
carvings in cliffs
sculptured arches of beauty
earth's pigments unveiled..
yucca and her moths
in symbiotic dance and
warm walks in the woods..
and not forgotten
Western aridity which
as presence becomes...

(with gratitude for
Wallace Stegner's
Thoughts on the West)
