Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States of America
Desert shadows and silhouettes
Hazy sky and spectral highlights
Joshua, Tree of Life
Standing tall and lordly

Over this world
Of heat and sorrow
Which takes so much
Then leaves so little

Into the sky he rises

Tree of life
Tree of shelter
Tree of sustenance
Tree of beauty

Life giver
In the land
Which takes

Joshua Tree National Park
California, United states of America
