Desert Gaming, A Sonnet

Desert Gaming, A Sonnet 

Sagebrush, cactus, sandy, hard rock, scrabble,
Dancing rain driven, tempest beaten earth,
Purple sage, storm drenched, flash flooding, gravel.
Rocky, barren desert, place of my birth.
Water rushing over desolate ground;
Las Vegas in springtime; storms in the desert.
Creatures of arid wasteland drenched, drowned,
While in the city men hope for pay dirt;
Their backs on God’s natural bounty turning,
Thus never satisfying their yearning.
