Dreamdust in Fields of Wonder

Joshua Tree

Landscape

With staggering silhouettes, hooked but friendly, Joshua Trees wave their hello to visitors of the rocky fields situated between the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. They are both greeter and guide to the geological wonders no man can make nor explain.

 

Gather out of star-dust,
Earth-dust,
Cloud-dust,
Storm-dust,
And splinters of hail,
One handful of dream-dust
Not for sale.

Langston Hughes, 1947
