Desert Snow



Snow in the desert
is quite implausible.
Precipitation
powder's improbable.
White blanket wrappers appear incredible,
like a cake frosting that is comestible.
Snow in the desert
is a rare occurrence.
Sporadic events
become lore conferrence.
Mobile delivery as a slick transference
in waxy white slush make a cool conveyance.
Snow in the desert
is an unlikely sight.
Rock-sand-caliche
is normally most right.
Drought landscape bushes covered with fluffy white
startles the senses in dissonant delight.
