A Polite Refusal To Succumb To Drought

  [Dedicated to Leonard Knight --1931-2014-- indomitable gardener, artist]

Calpatria, Camp Dunlap slabs,
South of Salton Sea, adobe,
Straw, paint and persistence--
He secured dunes in plaster and
That meant much to me.
A world changes, as do we,
And Salvation Mountain is
Hope fixed in memory.
