The Earth’s Rotation is Our Refresh Icon


The arrant light of daybreak restores our desert province

to precious clarity, but as the world turns, the gray chaparral

and yellow cliffs bloom white hot and the banded hills

become a picture that is overexposed and uninviting.



The reward for our endurance comes at twilight,

when nature’s products, and man’s efforts as well,

are suffused with the crimson wavelengths of the sun’s farewell;

Until tomorrow then: The earth’s rotation is our refresh icon.
